Speaker and Committee Member
Prof. Dr. Regina Palkovits, RWTH Aachen, Germany
Prof. Dr. Regina Palkovits is Chair of Heterogeneous Catalysis and Technical Chemistry Group at Institute of Technical and Macromolecular Chemistry (ITMC), RWTH Aachen, Germany. Research in her group focuses on the development of novel solid catalysts for the efficient utilization of fossil and renewable resources and on process design for the transformation of biomass into value-added chemicals and biofuels. The main topics under investigation are: Catalyst and process engineering for the efficient use of renewable resources; Multiphase catalytic systems for the integration of catalytic transformation and separation; Design of novel solid molecular catalysts to bridge homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysis; Material development for the challenge of energy production and sustainable technologies.
