Emeritus Professor of Process Intensification and former Director of TU Delft Process Technology Institute, Holland
Andrzej Stankiewicz is Emeritus Professor of Process Intensification and former Director of TU Delft Process Technology Institute. With more than 40 years of industrial and academic research experience he is author of numerous scientific publications on process intensification, chemical reaction engineering and industrial catalysis. Prof. Stankiewicz is one of the pioneers of process intensification. His visionary paper on PI has been cited about 1000 times so far. He is, among other things, co-author and editor of the world’s first book on Process Intensification: Re-Engineering the Chemical Processing Plant and principal author of another book The Fundamentals of Process Intensification. Andrzej Stankiewicz is also Editor of Elsevier’s journal Chemical Engineering and Processing: Process Intensification and Series Editor of the Green Chemistry Books Series (Royal Society of Chemistry). He was founder and the first Chairman of the Working Party on Process Intensification at the European Federation of Chemical Engineering. He currently chairs the Board of the European Process Intensification Centre (EUROPIC).
The research interests of Prof. Stankiewicz focus on control of molecular interactions and intensification of chemical processes using electricity-based forms of energy (e.g. laser, microwaves, plasma, UV). In this field, Professor Stankiewicz was awarded, among other things, the prestigious ERC Advanced Investigator Grant by the European Research Council, for carrying out research on “perfect chemical reactors”.
