Prof. Georgios Stefanidis holds an MSc degree in Chemical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens and a PhD degree in the same field from the University of Gent. He has co-authored over 100 peer-review papers in the broad field of Process Intensification, mostly focusing on alternative energy forms and transfer mechanisms (mainly microwaves and plasma), and the first book on the “Fundamentals of Process Intensification” (Wiley VCH, 2019). His research activity includes modeling of simultaneously occurring flow, chemistry and multiscale transport phenomena in electromagnetic and plasma fields as well as design and development of tailored equipment for microwave- and plasma-assisted processes including, among others, CO2, CH4 and waste valorization processes. He is currently one of the editors of the Chemical Engineering and Processing: Process Intensification Journal (Elsevier), Chair of the EFCE Working Party on Process Intensification, and serves on the management board of the Association of Microwave Power in Europe for Research and Education (AMPERE).
Andrzej Stankiewicz is Emeritus Professor of Process Intensification at Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands, and former Director of TU Delft Process Technology Institute. With 45 years of industrial and academic research experience he is author of numerous scientific publications on process intensification, chemical reaction engineering and industrial catalysis. Professor Stankiewicz is one of the pioneers of process intensification. He was the principal author and editor of the world's first book in that area. He was also the founder and the first Chairman of the Working Party on Process Intensification at the European Federation of Chemical Engineering. Presently, he chairs the Management Board of the European Process Intensification Centre (EUROPIC).
The research interests of Andrzej Stankiewicz focus on intensification of chemical processes using electricity-based energy transfer mechanisms. The research in this field brought him among other things the prestigious ERC Advanced Investigator Grant. Prof. Stankiewicz is currently affiliated at Warsaw University of Technology where he continues his research on green fuels production and on novel energy storage systems using renewable electricity as primary energy source.
