Catalysis and Catalytic Processes Laboratory

The new laboratories of LCCP group are located in the Bovisa Campus of Politecnico di Milano and cove 2000 m2. They comprise laboratories for catalyst preparation and characterization, for catalytic testing under atmosphere and high-pressure. The equipment for catalyst preparation permits to prepare catalytic systems both in the form of powders with (co) precipitation and soaking techniques and extrusion-based. The equipment for catalyst characterization comprises instruments for the morphological, structural, bulk and surface physico-chemical characterization, namely GC-MS, TPD/R/O, FT-IR in situ and/or operando, UV-Vis, XRD, DTA-TG, SEM available inside the group / Department. The equipment for catalytic activity tests comprise 20 rigs for powder and structured catalysts, steady state and transient conditions, also operated under pressure. Finally, a number of computational facilities are present for modelling and mathematical simulation (computing time at supercomputer centers, software for modelling and simulation).
