Photocatalytic Foams for Organic Micropollutant Degradation 

When: 29 March 2022, 15:00 GMT The presence of micropollutants – pharmaceuticals, pesticides, phthalates and hormones – in water is a major global health and environmental challenge. Conventional wastewater processes are not capable of effectively removing these compounds, often found at very low concentrations, µg L-1 or even ng L-1, leading…

Methanol to hydrocarbons (MTH) for Net Zero

Methanol to hydrocarbons (MTH) is an important petrochemical process due to its ability to replace conventional fossil fuels (e.g., coal and crude oil) based gasoline, olefins and aromatics production with carbon neutral renewable methanol feedstock, which can be derived from CO2 reduction with H2O. The MTH process can reduce the net…
