£12.9 million investment promises stronger, greener UK
Date:1/31/2013

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is investing 12.9 million in the UK Catalysis Hub, a UK-wide research programme into catalytic science focused on supporting UK economic growth while helping reduce CO2 emissions, produce cleaner water and generate more sustainable energy.

David Willetts, Minister for Universities and Science said: "Catalysis science is vital for many areas of the UK economy, from food production to pharmaceuticals. This investment will provide a focal point for the UK's leading expertise in this area, helping scientists further develop their skills and undertake cutting edge research to drive sustainable growth."

Catalysts speed up chemical reactions making them possible on useful timescales. Catalysis science is at the heart of key industrial processes both current and in the future and virtually all manufactured goods at some point in their manufacture involve the use of a catalyst.

Key examples are:

  • Environmental applications the clean-up of transport and industrial emissions
  • Product synthesis e.g. fertilisers, explosives, fuels, drugs, fibres, polymers
  • Efficient production of clean fuels, biofuels and clean water

Companies based in the UK play a big role globally in all these areas and generate wealth of 50 billion per annum as well as intellectual property for UK plc. Catalysis is critical to the country's chemical, energy, pharmaceutical, food, personal care and materials sectors; development of catalysis is also key to emerging sectors such as industrial biotechnology.

The UK has world-class strength and capability in catalysis and process engineering, with EPSRC having funded 28.5 million of catalysis research from 2006-2011. The new research programme builds on this expertise and support.

David Delpy, Chief Executive of EPSRC, said: "The UK has some outstanding researchers in the field of Catalysis, and it is a vital field for UK industry w
