Prof. Baltrusaitis focuses his research efforts in several areas of sustainable catalytic conversion. Those involve:

  • natural gas component catalytic conversion to high value products
  • biomass catalytic upgrading
  • sustainable sulfur and phosphorus processing
  • renewable energy utilization in wastewater processing
  • low concentration organic wastewater stream treatment
  • emerging contaminant remediation and environmental catalysis
  • surface sensitive spectroscopies, data processing method development
