A catalyst is a substance that enables a chemical reaction to proceed more readily and more selectively than it would on its own. It is a fundamental tool in most commercial processes to reduce energy and raw material consumption and ensure more efficient use of natural resources. Additionally catalysts can be used to clean emissions from many industrial processes and combustion engines. Clariant´s catalysis platform
