Aiming at sustainable methane conversion from renewable sources, such as natural gas and biogas, ZEOCAT-3D develops a new bi-functional (two types of active centers) structured catalysts, pioneering
1. a tetramodal pore size distribution (micro-, meso1-, meso2-, macro-porous) and
2. high dispersion of metal active sites.
Via methane dehydroaromatization (MDA), using hierarchical zeolite structures synthesized by 3D printing, ZEOCAT-3D investigates how to produce high value chemicals such as aromatics (benzene, naphthalene, among others) reducing greenhouse gas emissions within production by 60%.
