Webinar: Precious Metal Catalysts for the Conversion of Sustainable Feedstocks

Bio-based chemicals show a more attractive carbon footprint compared to their petrochemical analogues. The downstream conversion of biomass feedstock often requires precious metal catalysts.

In this webinar, we want to show how precious metal catalyst help to integrate innovative biomass-based intermediates in the chemical industry. You will learn:

  • How new emerging metals like ruthenium help to efficiently convert feedstock into valuable chemicals.
  • Strategies to obtain organic building blocks from biomass using precious metal
  • Show the cost attractiveness of precious metal-based catalysts when utilizing recycling loop strategies, which allow an efficient use of the scarce precious metals.
