    WorkshopPlasma Catalysis Towards Decarbonizing Society

    ■ Date : 14:00~17:00, November 5 (Sunday), 2023
    ■ Place : Room A (Conference Hall B), BPEX (5F)
    ■ Workshop Chair : Tomohiro Nozaki (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan)

    Nonthermal plasma is gaining tremendous interest as an emerging field of electron-driven chemistry, providing a unique opportunity for exploring chemistry frontiers. Nonthermal plasma is coupled with renewable electricity and activates stable molecules without excessive heating of the system, providing green hydrogen, ammonia, and renewable chemical commodities.

    The workshop focus on decarbonization technology based on nonthermal plasma combined with heterogeneous catalysts. The forefront scientists were invited for discussion of the current status of plasma catalysis research, including the future potential of industrial application as well as state-of-the-art diagnostics/modeling in plasma-surface interfaces.

    We welcome the audience who are interested in plasma surface science and catalysis but not limited, to discuss the issues for the sustainable development goals of gaining affordable and clean energy.
