Catalysis

 

There are few areas of chemistry that exemplify sustainability better than catalysis. Catalysis allows for increasing the rate of a transformation, increased efficiency, use of less feedstock, enhanced product quality, lower waste and lower emissions while at the same time increasing the profitability of a process/product. Virtually every major petrochemical, specialty chemical, or pharmaceutical company would not be economically viable without the use of catalysis. The blend of environmental benefit and economic returns via catalysis makes it amongst the most obvious and powerful tools to advance sustainability through chemistry.
