The CEBC works to develop cleaner, safer, energy-efficient technologies that protect the planet and human health. To do this, chemists and engineers design processes to manufacture chemicals and materials more safely and efficiently. They seek to increase use renewable raw materials, and decrease the environmental footprint of the products.
To do this, CEBC's research strategy revolves around understanding catalytic systems. In other words how do catalysts, reaction media, reactors, and separations all work together? How can experimental design and process optimization be guided by multi-scale modeling? How can resulting technologies both reduce environmental impacts and remain commercially attractive? CEBC's multi-disciplinary team is ideally suited to address these challenges.
Some of CEBC's ongoing projects are highlighted below.
