The PARTIAL-PGMs and CritCat projects, funded by the European Commission, are examining how new nanomaterials can be used to substitute effectively CRMs – specifically PGMs – in current applications. The projects bring together rational catalyst design including synthesis, characterization and realistic performance evaluation of the novel materials. The projects also deliver multi-scale modelling and large-scale computational simulations, with a strong emphasis on industrially-relevant chemical reactions and emerging technologies, in which PGMs play a pivotal role.
PARTIAL-PGMs and CritCat Consortia met academic, industrial and policy makers representatives, to discuss research results and future developments for the reduction of Critical Raw Materials use in Catalysis. The workshop was an excellent opportunity to learn about the latest research results, discuss and network, establish new collaborations and ultimately define recommendations for the future funded research in the field.
The EMMC was represented by Jesper Friis (SINTEF) and Alexandra Simperler (Goldbeck Consulting).
Jesper gave a talk on the EMMO and Alexandra introduced the EMMC in general.
Both were joining a panel and helped to discuss how materials modelling can meet industry demands.
