About the event

The conference builds on the successes of previous UCRA editions held in Zaragoza (2019) and Warwick (2022). It addresses the continuing trends in catalysis that exceed traditional applications in industrial reactors and are expanding into new areas, such as health, personal protection, climate and energy.

Many of those new applications require the catalysts to operate in unconventional environments, such as living cells, ionic liquids or supercritical fluids. Also, unconventional methods for local and selective catalyst activation such as microwaves, light, plasma, ultrasounds or magnetic fields, are explored, aiming to provide the energy needed directly to the catalyst, replacing the traditional, fossil fuel-based reactor heating. This is accompanied by the development of new, unconventional catalyst manufacturing technologies and reactor concepts.

Catalysis “beyond the reactor” presents a research area, in which interdisciplinary collaborations between the classical catalysis science, chemical and materials engineering, applied physics, electrical engineering, energy technology, information technology, biology or medicine play crucial role. Our conference brings together those collaborating disciplines, in order to provide insights in the latest developments and to map the future of this exciting research area.
