Chemical Technology

The Laboratory for Chemical Technology (LCT) integrates chemical science and engineering in its research on catalysis, polymerization, kinetics, reactor design and process design. LCT is part of the Department of Materials, Textiles and Chemical Engineering within the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at Ghent University in Belgium and member of the Centre for Sustainable Chemistry (CSC) of Ghent University.

TechBoost! to 6th edition: from molecule to process and product

Prof. Guy Marin


TechBoost! is due for his 6th edition on Thursday May 3 2018. TechBoost! boosts your technical knowledge with a lesson from an expert about a current relevant theme.

From molecule to process and product

This year also promises to be a very interesting edition with the theme "FROM MOLECULE TO PROCESS AND PRODUCT - Discover how engineers make large-scale use of chemistry for the sustainable solution of the challenges of our time".
Prof. dr. Guy Marin, world authority in the field of chemical reaction technology, gives the TechBoost! 2018 lesson. In his lesson he will briefly outline the basic principles of chemical reaction technology and explain some applications. These range from the design of chemical reactors to the direction of the development of new materials in general and catalysts and polymers in particular.
The main focus will be on contributions from the Laboratory for Chemical Technology (LCT) to possible technical solutions for global climate change. The expertise of the LCT in the field of sustainable chemistry (replacement of fossil fuels with renewable raw materials and the (re)use of waste materials including CO2) is recognized worldwide.
