Institute of Catalysis Research and Technology (IKFT)

The Institute of Catalysis Research and Technology was founded 2011. Its mission is to bridge the gap between fundamental and applied research and the development of new technologies and products in the field of catalysis and process technology of catalyzed processes. The focus of our work is the sustainable utilization of alternative feedstocks and their conversion into energy carriers intermediates. This includes the development of new catalytic systems based on a fundamental understanding of processes on a molecular level.



A new issue of the PyNe newsletter from IEA Bioenergy Task 34 “Direct Thermochemical Liquefaction” has been published and can be accessed herer. It covers the first Task 34 meeting of the current triennium 2019-2021 that took place at IKFT/ KIT, an introduction to the new task members and outlook for the work plans of the next three years. Co-processing of bio-oils in existing refineries will definitely be an issue in Task 34, which is also reflected in the scientific oriented contributions in this newsletter.
