17th Edition of International Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering and Technology | Boston, USA
Dear Catalysis 2023 attendees, Welcome to the 17th Edition of the International Conference on Catalysis, Chemical Engineering and Technology” (Catalysis 2023). It is a great pleasure, honor, and opportunity for me to welcome you to this conference since this meeting occurs at a very important point in time in our planet’s history due to the critical need of humanity to immediately address and ameliorate the looming global disaster that will be caused by severe climate change—we are running out of time! Catalysis by new materials and innovative chemical engineering to produce cost effective liquid and gaseous fuels from renewable energy sources (solar, wind, geothermal and wave ocean energy, and biological and artificial photosynthesis), is absolutely at the center of this global challenge. This is because globally, liquid and gaseous fuel consumption represents about ¾ of the total energy consumed annually, but the greatest progress to date in renewable energy science and technology has been in electricity from solar photovoltaics and wind energy, which is only ¼ of the energy consumed. Great and rapid progress in the science and engineering of fuels and related chemical products from renewable energy sources is obviously needed to solve the climate change problem. Please have a very successful meeting at the 17th Catalysis 2023 Conference.
