Research areas

  • Dehydrogenation processes of the light aliphatic hydrocarbons (C3, C4),

  • Hydrogenation of the alkylarenes,

  • Multi-phase catalytic processes under increased pressure and temperature - laboratory and half-technical scale.


  • Isoparaffinic hydrocarbon solvents technology,

  • Phosgene-free MDI process on a half-technical scale and methods to obtain amines via nitro compounds reduction with synthesis gas. Modernizations of the existing nitro compounds reduction processes.

Available methods and equipment

  • laboratory pressure installation using still-bed reactors (100 ml);
  • Berty's gradient-less reactor to study reaction kinetics in the gas phase (400 ml of catalytic bed volume);
  • large laboratory pressure installation with pipe reactors of 1000 to 3000 ml volume;
  • large laboratory vacuum installation to study hydrocarbons dehydrogenation processes at decreased pressure;
  • FALCON-NET distributed modular control system - industrial automation system, used with the above installations.
