One of the most important challenges facing engineers and scientists is the development of clean, efficient energy technologies. This challenge can be met using new or improved processes based on heterogeneous catalysts. Examples include fuel reforming as part of hydrogen-based fuel cell process, NO x control from lean-burn combustion processes, and catalytic combustion. In each of these examples, catalysts are being developed to overcome the technical and economic barriers to the widespread use of these technologies. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 228th ACS National Meeting (Philadelphia, PA 8/22-26/2004).
