Purpose of center:
While a large segment of the US industry, including the petroleum, chemical, pharmaceutical, automotive, and energy industries makes and/or uses catalysts, currently there is no academic program focusing on the operations required to make catalytic materials. Thus, catalyst manufacturing processes are often designed relying on empiricism, leading to uncertain/sub-optimal processes, decreased quality, and increased cost. By combining the substantial level of expertise in particle technology, optimization, multi-scale simulation, catalysis and molecular modeling available at Rutgers, we intend to develop and promote science-based methods for designing and optimizing catalyst manufacturing methods and processes such as impregnation, drying, slurry mixing, extrusion, calcination, etc. This will be integrated with a number of educational activities including research training of undergraduate students, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the area of Catalyst Manufacturing.
