The laboratory of Environmental Catalysis

Head - Prof. Zinfer R. Ismagilov

Laboratory of Environmental Catalysis emerged from the former Laboratory of Catalytic Heat Generators, which we created in 1983. Primarily we focused on the problems of total catalytic oxidation and catalytic combustion of different fuels, later our interest has expanded to a number of catalytic reactions and processes for environmental protection. Nowadays our research activities are focused on the following three fields of environmental catalysis:

  • cleaning of the exhausts and tails of existing "dirty" industries, VOC oxidation, DeNOx, H2S processing, catalytic converters;
  • development of the new environmentally benign catalysts and improvement of the classical catalytic technologies: catalytic combustion, alkylation, HDS, DeNOx, etc.;
  • development of the catalysts for principally new technologies; e.g. fuel cells, gas tight membrane catalysis, catalytic partial oxidation of methane (CPO), microreactors and catalysts on catalytic filamentous carbon (CFC).

In our research we use a wide array of modern physico-chemical methods and instruments available in the BIC. There is a very productive network with other Institutes of our scientific community in Novosibirsk, we have a number joint research projects with Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Institute of Chemical Kinetics and Combustion, Institute of Semiconductor Physics, Institute of Nuclear Physics, Institute of Organic Chemistry, Institute of Solid State Chemistry and others. We work in close cooperation with a number of research institutes and universities in other cities around Russia: Tomsk, Omsk, Biysk, Krasnoyarsk, Kemerovo, Perm, Yekaterinburg, Ufa, Kazan, Moscow and St. Petersburg.
