Research Projects in development now

The main research themes of our group are directed towards the development of novel homogeneous and heterogeneous catalytic processes, with a strong emphasis on the efficient usage of raw materials and energy as well as on the minimal generation of unwanted by-products.
Our research labour are involved in three main topics: sustainable energy and fuels, and new clean catalytic processes.
