DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Advanced Material Technologies for Refining Catalysis in Oil and Gas Processing" report to their offering.
Refinery catalysts are based on metals (such as nickel, molybdenum) and chemical compounds. They comprise of catalysts used for fluid catalytic cracking, hydrotreating, hydrocracking, alkylation, and isomerization activities. Zeolites are recently becoming interesting materials for oil and gas refiners. Overall the focus in this market for both academicians and organizations are to develop new materials for refining purposes. North American and European entities are highly active in this regard. Selectivity and high service life are the major decision making factors for catalyst selection.
The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thinfilms, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries.
