Industrial Catalysis and Adsorption Technology
The Industrial Catalysis and Adsorption Technology research group (INCAT) is part of the Materials, Textiles and Chemical Engineering department (MaTCh, EA11) of the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture of Ghent university. Our research focuses mainly on the development of catalysts and adsorbents with a strong focus on renewable resources and environmental management. This involves the catalytic conversion of biomass-derived streams, their upgrading and separation into useful chemicals, with a strong application-oriented goal. This goal is pursued by the many running research projects in collaboration with consortium and industrial partners, including smaller and middle-sized companies in the broader chemical industry.
Most of our staff is involved in teaching the students in Bachelor and Master of Science in Chemical Engineering Technology (industrieel ingenieur chemie), and many of these students are involved in this research as well via bachelor projects and master theses.
