Prof. R. E. (Bob) Hayes has been selected as the 2016 Canadian Catalysis Lectureship Award recipient. Bob is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the University of Alberta who has been active in Catalysis since his undergraduate years. Following a B. Eng. earned at the Technical University of Nova Scotia (TUNS), he pursued a PhD. with Professor John Thomas at the University of Bath, UK. He continued his work on catalysis at TUNS as an Assistant Professor, studying the methanation reaction, before moving to the University of Alberta in 1985. Since 1990, he has worked in the area of catalytic combustion in structured reactors, both for the mitigation of fugitive methane emissions and in the development of catalytic converters...
The 24th Canadian Symposium on Catalysis, to be held from May 8-11, 2016 at the University of Ottawa, will bring together leaders from science and engineering across Canada showcasing advances in heterogeneous, homogeneous and biocatalysis. This year’s theme, The Best is Yet to Come, emphasizes the relevance of catalysis in today’s society and the view toward the future for academic and industrial research, both fundamental and applied...
