AFLYST PGA. COVID-19 - Departmental seminar by Professor Dr. Eng. Fausto Gallucci

“Membrane reactors for process intensification”



Professor Dr. Eng. Fausto Gallucci, Inorganic Membranes and Membrane Reactors, Sustainable Process Engineering, Chemical Engineering and Chemistry, Eindhoven University of Technology


On March 24, Professor Dr. Eng. Fausto Gallucci from Einhoven, will give a seminar on “Membrane reactors for process intensification”

Membrane reactors are multifunctional reactors that integrate several unit operations in a single vessel, for an efficient process with reduced waste and increased yield. For instance, in membrane reactors either H2 or O2 membranes will be used for dehydrogenation and partial oxidation reaction (i.e., for ultra-pure hydrogen production or for gas-to-chemical production and for CCS and CCUS). By integrating reaction and separation, the yield and efficiency of the reaction system is increased, while the process is made more compact and inherently safer. In this seminar, we will discuss membrane reactors, and recent advances such as chemical looping/membranes and sorption enhanced membrane reactors.

Fausto Gallucci
Fausto Gallucci studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Calabria (UNICAL, Arcavacata di Rende, Italy) where he obtained his MSc (2001) and PhD (2006) degrees. He performed his PhD research on hydrogen production from methanol in membrane reactors. In 2007, after having held a position as a postdoctoral researcher at the Research Institute on Membrane Technology (ITM-CNR, at the UNICAL campus), Gallucci moved to the research group Fundamentals of Chemical Reaction Engineering at the University of Twente (Enschede, The Netherlands). In 2009 he was appointed Assistant Professor (tenure track) there. The following year, Gallucci moved to the Chemical Process Intensification laboratory at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e, The Netherlands) where he was appointed Associate Professor in 2015, leading the Multiphase Reactors research effort. In 2018 he was appointed full Professor at the chair 'Inorganic Membranes and Membrane Reactors'.

Coffee, tea and cake will be served.

 Participation is open to all interested people.
