Catalysis is the process of increasing the rate of some chemical reaction by adding a substance known as a catalyst. In today’s world many different things like petroleum products, plastics, textiles, pharmaceutical products, and various other chemicals are prepared through some catalytic processes. Catalysts speed up chemical reactions but can be recovered unchanged at the end of the reaction. They can also direct the reaction towards a specific product and allow chemistry to be carried out at lower temperatures and pressures with higher selectivity towards the desired product. As a result, they are used very extensively in the chemical Industry. There are two kinds of catalysts. Heterogeneous catalysts are insoluble in the medium in which the reaction is taking place so that reactions of gaseous or liquid reagents occur at the surface, whilst homogeneous catalysts are dissolved in the reaction medium and hence all catalytic sites are available for reaction. Problems can occur in catalysis many areas, including the activation of the catalyst, the catalytic process itself, and in the result of the process.
The best renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms have experts in a wide variety of bioeconomy specialties, including catalysis experts and consultants. They should also be able to provide clients project expertise and be available as expert witnesses in matters like aquaculture, biochemicals, bio-fertilizers, bio-fibers, biomass-to-sugars, bioplastics, cellulose, enzymes, food ingredients, industrial chemicals, latex, lubricants, nanocarbons, nutraceuticals, organometallics, polymers, renewable chemicals, rubber, and solvents).
