To address today’s environmental challenges, the production of energy and chemicals must rapidly change. The chemical industry currently relies on catalysts, materials that speed up reactions, in 90% of its processes, making catalysis one the most prominent engines of our society.

Catalysis will play a pivotal role in the transition from our fossil fuel-based society to a more sustainable and renewable society. Therefore, the design of new catalysts is crucial to the development of emerging chemical and electrochemical processes for sustainable energy production and storage. Developing novel catalytic systems for such a broad range of emerging applications, while facing metal scarcity issues, is challenging.
The key to designing new catalysts is understanding the complexity and dynamic nature of the catalyst surface – where the reaction takes place - during reaction. This challenge can be addressed by taking a multidisciplinary approach involving the design and testing of novel catalytic materials, and by using and developing cutting-edge new characterization techniques to gain fundamental understanding of the working catalyst. Applied to industry-relevant thermocatalytic and electrocatalytic reactions, this integrated process will help create a sustainable future through catalysis.
