Dear Colleagues:

The Catalyst Group Resources' (TCGR's) CATCON conference series is back - a return of the industry's leading venue for product/process innovation in the cataltyic process industries! Join us in Houston, TX December 8-9 by registering now!

At CATCON2014, the "Innovation to Growth" theme is now firmly focused on the chemical industry, targeting advanced technologies for partnership, development and commercialization, using both olefins and aromatic feedstocks. A featured conference session, "Unconventional Gas Processing and Conversion Advances," teases out lower cost catalytic routes to feedstocks, as well as processes that are advancing methane conversion, reduced GHG/CO2 and improved energy efficiency. Other topics, as listed below, also fortify the commitment to innovative approaches.

Leading companies are already committed including Evonik, BASF, Dow, Gas Technology Institute, Johnson Matthey/Davy Process, CRI/Zeolyst, Siluria, GTC Technology, Clariant, Serenix and Anellotech. We have also invited Arkema, Lucite, Asahi Kasei, and Mitsubishi among others, with the objective of capturing true innovation stories to help stimulate the audience of global participants.

In special arrangements unique to CATCON2014, the International Council of Chemical Associations' (ICCA's) Technology Roadmap "Energy and GHG Reductions in the Chemical Industry via Catalytic Processes" is being featured in the line-up to spark the industry conversation on the next steps to reduce energy and GHGs (see KEYNOTE, Day 2).

CATCON2014 has been specifically designed to stimulate technical/commercial thinking and to promote discussions regarding the role of new developments in meeting changing energy/fuels, petrochemical/chemical and other demands across applications, inlcuding:

  • Unconventional Gas Processing and Conversion Advances
  • Advanced Aromatics Technologies
  • Advanced Chemicals Technologies
  • Energy Efficiencies/GHG Reductions via Catalysis
  • Advanced Technologies in Fuels and Additives Production
  • Leading Innovation to Drive Value
