Rio de Janeiro, 7th May 2017
During the 20th century, Acid-Base Catalysis played a key role in the development of improved oil refining and petrochemical processes. Today, with the climate changes the world is experiencing, Acid Base Catalysis will continue to play an important role, helping the development of more sustainable processes relying on biomass and CO2 processing.
The International Symposium on Acid-Base Catalysis occurs every four years in a different country. The ABC-8 will take place in Brazil, gathering the scientific and industrial community to discuss the advances in the area and forecasts the pathway of Acid-Base Catalysis towards a more sustainable world.
Themes of the symposium:
- Acid-Base Catalysis applied to fossil fuel refining and petrochemical
- Acid-Base Catalysis applied to biofuel production and biomass processing
- Acid-Base Catalysis applied to fine chemicals
- Acid-Base Catalysis applied to environmental aspects and CO2 conversion
Two poster prizes from Catalysis Science & Fuels will be awarded at the symposium.
