Heterogeneous Catalysis Research Laboratory

-A +A

Regarding catalyst productions with the aim of preventing hydrogen accumulation in submarine at “Heterogeneous Catalysis Research Laboratory-Defense and Forensic Sciences Strategic Business Unit” functioned within Chemistry Technology Institute, the following subjects are currently studied on:
• Development of catalyst production process,
• Determination of catalyst lives,
• Recovery of end-of-life catalysts,
• Determination of physical and chemical properties,
• Determination of hydrogen combustion performance
As a result of extensive R&D studies, the remanufacturing of end-of-life catalysts at submarines via recovering their precious metal contents has been succeeded. Thanks to the gained recycling technology, a considerable cost saving has been achieved; thereby dependency on importing of this component, which has a vital importance for human lives at submarines, has been gone away.
