22 Technology INNOVATION More intelligent chemical production The conventional processes used to make the chemical building blocks of many modern consumer goods are enormously energy-intensive and can result in hard- to-treat waste streams. INL researchers are using a cutting-edge Temporal Analysis of Products TAP reactor system to examine individual reaction steps of a complex catalytic mechanism on a complex catalytic surface. This information makes it possible to optimize or design multicomponent industrial materials to deliver a specific product or chemical. The TAP reactor system is located in the Center for Advanced Energy Studies a public research facility that can be accessed by researchers from other national laboratories academia and industry.
