Catalysis And Reactor Technology (CREATE)

Catalysis and reactor technology form the cornerstone of industrial chemistry and chemical and fuel processes.  The research fields associated with catalysis have provided the sole basis for the oil and gas processing industry and are major contributors to emerging green technologies for chemical manufacturing, energy conversion and environmental protection.  Over 90% of manufactured goods depend partly on catalytic processes. CREATE is one of the largest research groups in catalysis in South African with a diverse focus of research activities, consisting of a blend of science and engineering that is unique in the country. 

The leader of CREATE is Prof Linda Jewell of the Department of Chemical and Civil Engineering.
