IIT Guwahati ‘develops’ catalysts for transforming industrial waste into usable chemicals

Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Guwahati have formulated efficient “pincer” catalytic systems that transform industrial or biomass wastes into valuable chemicals.

A very tiny amount of these “pincer catalysts” repeatedly convert large amounts of industrial waste such as glycerol into lactic acid and hydrogen.

Such catalysts also efficiently convert bioethanol, a low-energy density fuel, into high-energy density butanol.
