Dr. rer. nat. Joachim Pasel is head of group “Chemical Technology for Fuel Processing” at the Institute of Energy and Climate Research (IEK-3: Electrochemical Process Engineering) of Forschungszentrum Juelich GmbH. He studied chemistry at the Ruhr-University in Bochum, Germany, and did his PhD in chemistry at the University of Leipzig, Germany. The focus of Dr. Pasel´s scientific work is the development and experimental validation of catalytically supported reactors for autothermal reforming of middle distillates (diesel fuel and kerosene), water-gas-shift reaction and catalytic combustion for fuel cell systems. This work has been closely connected to research and development projects together with Airbus Deutschland GmbH. Additionally, his scientific work covers processes for desulfurization of middle distillates in the liquid phase. Dr. Pasel is author of several scientific papers about fuel processing and different processes for desulfurization. He is a recognized reviewer for scientific papers in these areas.
