Catalysts are used in industry because they make reactions happen faster, and allow reactions to occur at a lower temperature, which saves energy. Therefore, by using catalysts, companies can save both time and money. Often, a catalyst can only work for one particular reaction, so there is a constant search for new and improved catalysts. Catalysts are used in the production of ammonia, sulphuric acid, biological detergents, margarine, biodiesel and much more.

In the Haber process costs are lessened by the use of an
