His current research revolves around the catalytic processing of all types of sustainable (carbon) sources such as biomass residues, with a current focus on lignin and waste plastics. Here, he combines different types of catalysis and detailed chemical analysis to obtain upgraded oil mixtures, but preferably defined polymeric and monomeric compounds that can be used for novel bio-based applications. Key approach are selective chemical modification to enable new utilization or facilitate catalytic breakdown.
