Valerii Bukhtiyarov, director of Boreskov Institute of Catalysis (Novosibirsk), reported on the prospects of using the renewable vegetable stock in the fuel and petrochemical complex of Tatarstan
The main research focus is the creation of new generation heterogeenous nanostructured catalysts and adsorbents for various applications. Among the priorities are the development of materials with controlled properties, deliberate search for new and improvement of existing catalytic systems, synthesis and characterization of catalysts and sorbents, studies of of intimate mechanisms of heterogeneous reactions and reactant-to-surface reactions, identification of active sites.
Modern investigation techniques are available in the laboratories for synthesis and testing of new heterogeneous catalysts. Automated installations are designed for off-line studies of intricate catalytic processes.
