Industry Overview:

Innovators and trouble-shooters can find even more and better uses for catalysts, a primary factor in the chemical and auto industries and other fields. The possibilities are complex but intriguing; catalysis calls on such distinct fields as applied sciences, organometallic chemistry, materials science, environmental science and “green” science,” to name a few.

An employee with education, experience and perceptive thinking can add value with skills – creating new molecules, finding the right catalyst for a specific use, recovering precious metals from spent catalysts, or raising and lowering the speed of catalysts, just to list a few needs.
