Dr. Marius Kirchmann
"Challenges and solutions for relevant laboratory protocols for FCC catalyst testing" (tentative)
Marius Kirchmann works as Senior Scientist for R&D Solutions and has been carrying out research in heterogeneous catalysis in the field of petrochemicals such as naphtha reforming, aromatics processes and methanol to hydrocarbons in collaboration with companies for nearly 10 years. He is actively developing and improving hte´s high throughput technology and more recently investigating processes with short contact time and fast deactivation such as fluid catalytic cracking (FCC). His current focus is on the development of the micro downflow unit (MDU) which provides an entrained flow reactor originally developed by Professor Avelino Corma.
He holds a PhD in chemistry from the University of Tuebingen, Germany and spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley.
At hte, we make R&D in the area of catalysis faster and more productive. We enable cost-effective innovations and reduced time to market for new products, thereby allowing our customers in the energy & refining, chemical & petrochemical, and environmental industry to keep ahead of the competition. Our technology and services comprise R&D Solutions and Technology Solutions. Our close ties with BASF guarantee long-term orientation and stability.
