January 30, 2015. Professors Yong-Wang Li and Hans Niemantsverdriet signed a contract at Synfuels’ Headquarters in Huairou to extend their collaboration until the end of 2020. This will enable Syngaschem BV to continue and even expand its research activities in The Netherlands. The research will be in close collaboration with the SynCat@BJ laboratory, and will focus on the elementary surface chemistry of catalytic reaction steps.
In addition, Syngaschem will continue to support the organization of SynCat, as well as that of the SynCat Academy in development of courses for education in the fundamentals of catalytic surface chemistry and scientific leadership.
