Researchers find way to better understand and use zeolites

July 14, 2015 |

In Washington state, researchers from the Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), UOP and Netherlands-based Utrecht University have found a way to understand chemical transformations occurring within zeolites.

Data from the study will allow scientists to find ways to keep the factory running, as well as enhance catalysts that help produce fuel, biofuel and other chemicals. As part of the study, the team redesigned the 3D atomic map of a zeolite material to track its key element, aluminum.
