“Chemistry in Motion”
“Society demands more economical production of petroleum-based fuels, development of alternative fuels and lightweight building components and more efficient and aerodynamic designs of our transportation vehicles. That, in turn, requires advances in catalysis, the development of bio-based and renewable production of fuels and lightweight, structural materials, the development of new economically viable sources of power such as hydrogen fuel cells and photovoltaics, as well as health and environmental effects of those technologies. On the one hand, chemistry will facilitate the refinery of the future, and on the other hand it will provide the means to replace the those refineries with sustainable technologies and bio- or agro-based renewable methods to use chemistry for motion.”

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of this well established meeting, EuropaCat XI will take place in Lyon, France, in 2013. Today, catalysis is at the centre of major societal concerns about energy, environment and sustainable development. To meet these challenges, an interdisciplinary approach from molecules to materials and processes is required, joining efforts from heterogeneous, homogeneous and enzymatic catalysis. The ambition of EuropaCat XI is to cover the most advanced research topics in these fields and to pave the way for future research challenges. A general focus will concern the comparison between approaches involving fossil versus renewable resources and the replacement of noble metals by new catalytic materials.”
