Background and activities

Current research:

  • The use of alginate to synthesize novel heterogeneous catalysts.
  • The catalytic activity of the catalysts are tested in the Fischer Tropsch synthesis (FTS), where syngas (CO + H2) reacts to form hydrocarbons.
    • The aim of this work is to produce short-chain hydrocarbons with terminal double bonds (olefins).
    • Olefins are highly valuable building-blocks for the chemical industry, especially for the production of various polymers.
  • A special emphasis is placed on iron catalysts, as they can utilize syngas directly from carbon-rich feedstocks, such as biomass.
