Johnson Matthey is a specialty chemicals
company and a leader in sustainable technologies (http://www.matthey.com). JM has operations in over 30 countries and
employs 13,000 people. JM’s principal activities include the manufacture of automotive and heavy duty
diesel catalysts and pollution control systems, catalysts and technologies for
chemical processes, fine chemicals and active pharmaceutical ingredients, the
refining and fabrication of precious metals, and supply of catalysts and
components for fuel cells and Li-ion batteries. Johnson Matthey’s participation
in the project will be through the Technology Centre in Reading, UK. This
central facility acts as a focal point for the development of new technologies
into emerging markets.
Dr Peter Ellis will act as the overarching coordinating scientist at JMTC. Dr Ellis has a BSc in Chemistry (1995) and PhD in Catalysis (1999), both from University of Durham, UK. He carried out post-doctoral research in catalytic synthesis of hydrogen peroxide (1999-2001) at Queens University Belfast and Reading University. He joined JM in 2001, and his main activities have focussed on catalyst synthesis and characterisation, in particular for the Fischer Tropsch synthesis. Other systems studied include CuAu and PdAu catalysts for selective oxidation reactions and Pd catalysts for hydrogenation. Since 2017, Dr Ellis has been leading a team looking at electrochemistry applications including catalysts for electrolysers, the use of electrolysis in chemical processes and electrochemical synthesis of organic and inorganic chemicals.
