To investigate the use of residual matrix from 4 low-grade waste families, as potential heterogeneous catalysts. Such matrix residues are expected to offer cheaper alternatives to current catalysts. The influence of impurities and other material components on catalytic performance is studied with operando microscopy and spectroscopy techniques, and compared with more expensive catalysts. Study how the physicochemical properties of the matrix residue catalysts influence their performance, should lead to an improved understanding of how to further improve their performance.
