26th to the 28th of April 2017 in CSIRO Clayton (Melbourne), Australia
Sponsored jointly by the CSIRO Office of the Chief executive and the Catalysis Society of Australia this cutting edge science symposium seeks to bring together chemists, material scientists, chemical engineers and process scientists from academia, government and industry with a focus on catalysed processes for storing and transporting energy.

Wind and solar are mature sustainable energy sources, but they are not constantly available. Technologies for the storage of renewable energy during peaks in production remain a challenge. Storage of this electricity as chemicals is a flexible approach allowing their later use in regeneration of electricity or as saleable products. This symposia aims to revitalise catalysis research that has been long dormant in Australia by bringing together the academic researchers, catalyst companies, government agencies and local chemical industry for talks and discussions.
A focus of the Symposium will be to build a vision of the role of catalysed chemical manufacture as a mechanism for energy storage and transport. As an outcome of this symposium a road-map for these activities in the Australian context will be prepared.
Abstracts are requested from scientists wishing to contribute presentations in the field of catalysis and provide a perspective related to the symposium focus.
