Webinar series – Autumn 2016

Untitled-1

We have expanded our webinar series – join us this fall and learn more about the chemical industry and heterogeneous catalysis!

Our previous webinars have been greatly appreciated and to the fall, the series have been expanded to seven sessions. To start off two sessions about oil refinery and the chemical industry will be given. An introduction to catalysis will cover the basic concepts of catalysis and the following four sessions will give more in-depth knowledge about different areas within heterogeneous catalysis. You will find information about the different topics, time and date below. All sessions are 30-60 minutes long and hand-outs will be available during the webinar, as well as distributed after the webinar.

Oil Refinery
The oil refinery is a lovely combination of unit operations ranging from physical, thermal and catalytic. Here we will give an overview of the refinery inputs, outputs and unit operations.

Date: September 7th 2016
Time: 9:00 AM or 9:00 PM CET

Chemical Industry
The chemical industry is a complex arena. We will try to untangle it for you by giving an overview of the feedstocks used as well as the production of bulk and specialty chemicals.

Date: September 20th 2016
Time: 9:00 AM or 9:00 PM CET

Catalysis Introduction
The webinar will start with an introduction to the basic concepts of catalysis. Thereafter the areas of heterogeneous as well as homogeneous catalysis will be covered, followed by a part on industrial heterogeneous catalysis including deactivation and production.

Date: September 29th 2016
Time: 9:00 AM or 9:00 PM CET

Catalyst Testing
Do you know what you are measuring? To investigate heterogeneous catalysts for activity and selectivity is a difficult task. What is measured, how is it measured and are the experiments performed with gradients in the reactor? In the webinar we will review various ways of testing catalyst in different forms, sizes and reactor scales as well as freshen up on assessing testing gradients.

Date: October 25th 2016
Time: 9:00 AM or 9:00 PM CET

Catalyst Manufacturing
In this webinar we will review the principles of heterogeneous catalyst manufacture. We will dive into the production of both bulk catalysts and impregnation of pre-shaped bodies. Included in the information will be types of unit operations and the influence of certain parameters on the final product.

Date: November 10th 2016
Time: 9:00 AM or 9:00 PM CET

Catalyst Characterization
Some of the surface phenomena that are included in the concept of catalysis require special tools and methods of investigation. This webinar will give an overview of the most common ones and some practical examples

Date: November 22th 2016
Time: 9:00 AM or 9:00 PM CET

Catalyst Deactivation
There is nothing as important to heterogeneous catalyst lifetime as understanding and counteracting deactivation as well as poisoning effects. In this webinar we will cover the main modes of deactivation, e.g. poisoning, fouling and sintering and their connection to catalyst life as well as how they may be amended.

Date: December 7th 2016
Time: 9:00 AM or 9:00 PM CET

Do you have any questions you would like us to answer during the webinars? Send them to us at info@hulteberg.com. We hope to see as many of you as possible and if you have any other questions regarding the webinars please feel free to contacts us!


The presenter of the webinars will be associate professor Christian Hulteberg, founder and managing director of Hulteberg Chemistry & Engineering. Dr. Hulteberg has a strong background in chemical engineering in general and catalysis in particular. He is the chair of the Swedish catalyst association and an expert to the European Commission, within the IEA-HIA, and to the Norwegian research counsil.
