CatCost: An Estimation Tool to Aid Commercialization and R&D Decisions for Catalytic Materials

September 26, 2018 12:00PM to 12:45PM MDT

Join the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Bioenergy Technologies Office on Sept. 26, 2018, from 12:00 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. MDT for the Chemical Catalysis for Bioenergy consortium (ChemCatBio) webinar: “CatCost: An Estimation Tool to Aid Commercialization and R&D Decisions for Catalytic Materials.” Catalyst costs can significantly drive up the costs of biomass conversion processes; reducing uncertainty in catalyst cost can inform researchers as they identify new biofuel pathways that may be commercially viable.  CatCost, a catalyst cost estimation tool, has been developed to more accurately estimate costs early in the catalyst development process prior to commercialization. CatCost incorporates industry standard estimation methods into a user-friendly spreadsheet and web tool to be distributed online free-of-charge. This webinar will detail the methods used by CatCost, demonstrate how it was validated using commercially available materials (e.g., FCC, hydrotreating catalysts), and provide pre-commercial estimate examples (e.g., colloidally synthesized nanoparticles). The webinar will also include a tutorial on how to use CatCost.
