NRC workshop to focus on advances in catalysis needed to exploit feedstock changes driven by shale gas 26 July 2015 The Board on Chemical Sciences and Technology (BCST) of the National Research Council (NRC) will host an interactive, multidisciplinary public workshop scheduled for May 2016 that will focus on identifying gaps and opportunities in catalysis research in an era of shifting feedstocks from crude oil to natural gas for chemical production. Possible outcomes of the workshop could be research that develops new methane conversions to chemical intermediates; develops new pathways for converting plentiful natural gas into useful chemicals with simple, inexpensive materials and moderate conditions; and enables on-purpose routes to chemicals that have traditionally been produced as byproducts of crude oil refining. Background. Currently, global petrochemical production...
