Abstract

This contribution discusses some aspects crucial for designing optimal and sustainable oxidation processes. The catalyst, although at the heart of the system, is only one decisive design parameter amongst many others. Indeed, an interdisciplinary approach is required to improve existing processes, but also to rationally and systematically access opportunities for oxidation research on renewable feedstock compounds.

Keywords

Renewable feedstock Process viability Activation Partial oxidation
