Research and development in catalysis is well connected with green chemistry and green process design attempts. That is why a full chapter of this book is dealing with the recent progress in this field. An overview is given ranging from homogeneous vs. heterogeneous catalysis, biocatalysis, and the reactor and process engineering aspects to catalyst design and recovery. In addition, appropriate assessment methods of potential environmental impact are introduced, allowing an informed decision towards more environmentally benign concepts.
