Sustainable Chemo-BioCatalytic Production (ComBioCat) - Leibniz ScienceCampus Rostock
The Leibniz ScienceCampus ComBioCat is dedicated to one of the major challenges facing society: the transformation from fossil resources to renewable raw materials for the production of chemicals and energy sources. Here, catalysis is the key technology. The task is complex and requires an interdisciplinary approach. Only the cooperation of the four partner institutions can cover all the necessary catalytic disciplines. With their combined expertise in bio-, chemo- and photocatalysis, innovative plasma-based catalysis and process engineering, the aim is to harness previously inaccessible biomass and develop catalyst systems for sustainable chemical and energy production. This also includes the development of concepts for the conversion of waste materials into high-quality chemical products.
