Danckwerts Lecture

Monday, October 29, 2012, 11:15am-12:15pm EDT

The international chemical engineering community has an annual award lecture, the Danckwerts lecture, named to commemorate Peter V. Danckwerts who was the second professor of chemical engineering at the University of Cambridge, founding editor of the journal “Chemical Engineering Science”, and originator of some of the theoretical approaches which are central to chemical engineering (including residence time theory, which has applications in material flow accounting). The lecture is sponsored by the European Federation of Chemical Engineering (EFCE), the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) and Elsevier (publishers of Chemical Engineering Science).

Below, Guy Marine sat down with AIChE's Stephanie Orvoine-Couvrette to discuss his lecture.

Guy B. Marin

Guy B. Marin  is professor in Chemical Reaction Engineering at  Ghent University (Belgium) and directs the Laboratory for Chemical Technology.  He received his chemical engineering  degree from Ghent University in 1976 where he also obtained his Ph.D. in 1980. He previously held  a  Fulbright fellowship at Stanford University and  Catalytica Associates (USA) and was full professor from 1988 to 1997 at Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands) where he taught  reactor analysis and design.  The investigation of chemical kinetics, aimed at the modeling and design of chemical...Read more
