Politecnico di Torino

Politecnico di Torino was founded in 1857, and it has 30000 students, 700 Ph.D. students and more than 3000 employees. The group of “Catalytic Reaction Engineering for Sustainable Technologies” (CREST) at Politecnico di Torino, Department of Applied Science and Technology, includes 7 academic members and 20 contract researchers (including 12 PhDs) having different and complementary expertise (chemical and biochemical engineering, industrial chemistry, catalyst science, materials science).

The main research activities of the CREST group are in the field of environmental catalysis: catalytic treatment of Diesel exhaust gases; catalytic filters for flue gas cleaning; catalytic combustion of methane; catalytic membrane reactors; electro-catalytic processes; recovery of valuable chemical from waste waters via electro-membrane processes; short-contact time reactors for syngas production; water photolysis.
