    Catalysis

    DST Centre of Excellence in Catalysis

    Research at this Centre focuses on chemical catalysis (homo- and hetero-) mainly for the conversion of gas to liquid fuels and for downstream processing aimed at adding value to bulk chemicals. With the manufacturing sector being the largest contributor to South Africa's GDP and with chemical manufacturing the largest single contributor to the South African manufacturing sector, chemical processing is recognised as a distinct field for targeted innovation initiatives as emphasised in the National Research and Development Strategy - and catalysis lies at the heart of 90 % of all chemical transformation processes.
