“Bottom-up” additive manufacturing (AM) is the technology whereby a digitally designed structure is built layer-by-layer, i.e., differently than by traditional manufacturing techniques based on subtractive manufacturing. AM, as exemplified by 3D printing, has gained significant importance for scientists, among others, in the fields of catalysis and separation. Undoubtedly, it constitutes an enabling pathway by which new complex, promising and innovative structures can be built. According to recent studies, 3D printing technologies have been utilized in enhancing the heat, mass transfer, adsorption capacity and surface area in CO2 adsorption and separation applications and catalytic reactions. However, intense work is needed in the field to address further challenges in dealing with the materials and metrological features of the structures involved. Although few studies have been performed, the promise is there for future research to decrease carbon emissions and footprint. This review provides an overview on how AM is linked to the chemistry of catalysis and separation with particular emphasis on reforming reactions and carbon adsorption and how efficient it could be in enhancing their performance.
