Description: Schematic overview of the dual-layered CNF catalyst support system.

Picture of Joline


We are developing a novel catalyst support system consisting of two types of carbon nanofibers (CNFs). One of the CNF types is loaded with catalyst particles. The other type is used as a binder to attach the first type to a metal support. The goal is to enable easy recycling of the catalyst particles, after deactivation, by removing selectively only the first type of CNFs.
