Catalysis

Catalysis is the increase of the rate of a chemical reaction by lowing the necessary energy. It is done by using a substance, known as a catalyst, that is not consumed during the reaction. In some cases, the goal of catalysis is to produce a specific desired reaction. Life is only possible thanks to the catalysis of biochemical reactions by enzymes.

In the H2GREEN system, the catalysts are enzymes (active proteins). They facilitate reactions by reducing the energy required, which increases the speed and energy efficiency.

The term “catalysis” designates a process which aims to modify the chemical kinetics by lowering the energy barrier to be crossed. The goal of catalysis is to increase the rate at which a chemical reaction occurs or, sometimes, to favour one reaction over another.

Catalyst

A catalyst is a substance that decreases the activation energy and increases the rate of a chemical reaction without being consumed in that reaction.

Energy Vector

An energy vector conveys energy from a source (eg the sun) to its use (eg motor).

Enzymes

Enzymes are proteins that act as biological catalysts, which means that they speed up the body's biochemical reactions and make life possible. They are naturally present in vegetables and animals. They can also be produced industrially by fermentation.

Corenzyme

Enzyme with simplified structure keeping the active site.
