Category Conferences - Seminars
The purpose of this seminar is to give an overview of some of the sustainable and clean energy research themes being pursued at the Reaction Engineering and Catalytic Technology group, Imperial College London. Examples will cover solar fuels, biofuels and clean fossil energy. Solar fuels examples will touch on recent work relevant to the engineering of photo-electrochemical water splitting devices.
Biofuels examples will outline our work on algae based fuels production as well as the transformation of such biomass into crude.
Clean fossil energy will focus on our most recent work in the area of methane pyrolysis.

Klaus Hellgardt (KH) is a Professor of Chemical Engineering in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. He is the current Director of Undergraduate Studies. KH’s research focuses on advanced reaction engineering and applied catalysis, with specific emphasis on solar (bio)fuels, smart petrofuels engineering, kinetics, (electro-) chemical and bioreactor modeling, design and application. He is the head of the REaCT group (Reaction Engineering and Catalytic Technology). To date, his cumulative grant support exceeds £20M. He has published over 150 papers, a similar number of conference proceedings, six book chapters and eight patents.
