The main goal of the Conference is to discuss, at the both global and molecular level, topics relevant to the actual concepts and models of the catalysis involved in:

  1. Mobile sources emissions.
    NOx treatment (NOx trap, NH3 SCR, HC SCR, H2 SCR) and Particulate Matter abatement from classical or renewable fuels will be the main topics of this session. Other subjects such as the catalysis for on-board ammonia production or urea decomposition could be developed.
    (Session 1)
  2. Stationary sources for air and water treatment.
    Abatement of atmospheric pollution by catalytic decomposition of N2O at high temperatures (nitric acid plants) and its catalytic reduction at medium temperatures will be the main subjects of this session. Catalytic NO reduction or decomposition in flue gases (coal, natural gas) and VOC treatment are also of interest. Additionally, wet catalytic oxidation of pollutants or photocatalysis will also be considered.
    (Session 2)
  3. Clean Fuels and Renewable Energy.
    The focus of this session is catalytic coal and biomass gasification and valorization to cleaner fuels. Thus, syngas and fuels production are the main subjects to be discussed. Processes such as reforming (oxy, dry, steam), partial methane oxidation (POM), chemical looping combustion (CLC), chemical looping reforming (CLR), water gas shift (WGS) and Fischer-Tropsch reactions will also be considered at the both global and molecular level.
    (Session 3)

Special attention will be paid to the design of catalysts based on new concepts and models and on modeling and simulation of materials and reactions.
