International congress on Catalysis and Automotive Pollution Control – 12th edition

April 6th – 8th, 2022
Brussels, Belgium

Welcome to actors from industry and academia at the occasion of the CAPoC12. The event will be held in face-to-face format.



All topics related to applications and requirements of catalysis in automotive (including cars, light and heavy duty vehicles) emission control will be considered such as

  • Catalyst and sorption technologies (TWC, cold start emission, lean-burn of gasoline and diesel: SCR, storage and other NOx emission control)
  • Particulate emission control for both diesel and gasoline engines
  • After treatment for gaseous HC, H2 and renewable or reformulated fuel mixtures
  • Emission control for natural-gas and dual-fuel engines
  • Emission control for hybrid vehicles
  • Off-cycles emissions and unregulated pollutants (e.g. greenhouse gases)
  • Materials for catalysts, washcoat and fuel-borne catalysts (additives)
  • Modelling of after treatment systems and catalyst characterization
  • Integrated emission control systems, on-board diagnostics
  • Sustainable fuel technologies
  • eFuels chemistry
  • Liquid organic hydrogen carriers
  • Innovative technologies (new materials, recovery of precious metals)
  • Marine applications

Format and languages

A limited number of papers will be presented in full oral form. It is intended to discuss posters in special sessions, after their presentation.

1 – 2 typewritten A4 pages using 12 point font size and 1.5 line spacing

Submission must be in English.

Template example: .doc format / .docx format


It is intended to publish all accepted papers with no distinction between oral and poster form, as proceedings in the “Topics in Catalysis”. Papers will be peer-reviewed before the conference and respective reports will be made available to authors before or at the latest during the conference. Papers will be limited in size. Further information on the format will be given in due course.


  • September 15th, 2021: Submission of extended abstracts (1 – 2 typewritten A4 pages using 12 point font size and 1.5 line spacing).
  • November 12th, 2021: Authors are informed of the acceptance of their paper.
  • January 15th, 2022 : Deadline for receipt of the full manuscript in order for it to be sent for review and to appear in the volume of preprints made available to participants  at the Congress. The preprints will appear under the author’s responsibility.
  • January 31st, 2022: Early bird registration deadline. The second circular detailing the final program and information on accommodation is distributed.
