Catalysis is the key to both life and lifestyle.

It underpins 30-40% of GDP and is increasing in value by an average of 5% per annum.

Catalysis is a crucial enabling technology for:

the chemical and pharmaceuticals industries;

environmental protection;

clean and efficient energy production.

The core competencies in CenTACat, range from computation (the application of density functional theory and computational fluid dynamics) through synthesis (inorganic and organic chemistry) and kinetic evaluation (physical chemistry and engineering) to intelligent systems and process control and process engineering (E&E and mechanical engineering) creating a ‘one-stop’ capability to address challenging scientific and engineering problems.
