7th RUHR-Symposium

November 3rd, 2021

Catalysis as a key technology: In more than 80 percent of all chemical industrial processes, catalysts are used and products are obtained by catalysis. Fuels, fertilizers, plastics and dyes, pharmaceuticals, crop protection agents and auxiliary materials for food or the electrical and semiconductor industries – all this is only made possible by catalysis. Therefore, functional materials for catalysis are focused on the 7th RUHR Symposium. In tandem talks, experts from industrial and academic partnerships will discuss concepts, synergies and exciting scientific results.
