Reactor and Process Analysis

In 2011 the Cluster of Excellence “Unifying Concepts in Catalysis” (UniCat) and the chemical company BASF SE founded the new jointlab BasCat at the Technische Universität Berlin. BasCat is dedicated to fundamental research in the field of heterogeneous catalysis.

BasCat's Mission

Lupe [11]
  • Rational catalyst development concept
  • Knowledge-based prediction of catalyst performance through scaling from atomistic to industrial level
  • Transfer of fundamental research to industrial application
  • Multidisciplinary approach:
    physics, physical chemistry, inorganics, metalorganics, material science, engineering
  • Strong collaboration in long-standing partnerships
  • Working within a large network of academic and industrial researchers

Research Areas

  • Raw Material Change (2011-2021)

    • Selective oxidation of  alkanes to olefins and oxygenates
    • Dehydrogenation of alkanes to olefins
    • Conversion of synthesis gas to higher alcohols
    • Activation of methane (oxidative coupling, dry reforming)

  • Sustainabilty and Climate Change (since 2021)

    • Hydrogen applications (use and synthesis)
    • Reduction of carbon dioxide emissions
    • Circular economy and recycling
