Prof. Heeres is active in the development of novel catalytic chemistry and reactor concepts (among others microreactors, centrifugal contactor separator devices) for catalytic processes with a strong emphasis on the conversion of (lignocellulosic) biomass to energy, biofuels and biobased (performance) chemicals. The group also performs research in the field of heterogeneous catalysis, with emphasis on the synthesis, characterisation and applications of zeolites, mesoporous materials and mixed oxides.

Prof. Heeres's main research interests concern the development of efficient catalytic technology for acid- and metal-based catalytic biomass conversions, with an emphasis on biofuels (catalytic pyrolysis, pyrolysis oil upgrading) and platform chemicals (levulinic acid, hydroxymethylfurfural).
