Dr Chunfei Wu visited Hebei University of Technology

Chunfei Wu - Hebei 2017Dr Chunfei Wu from The University of Hull has visited Hebei University of Technology in August and September 2107. He tested a new pressurized reactor for plastic pyrolysis, which will provide extra valuable facility for this project. In addition, co-pyrolysis and co-gasification of biomass components (cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin) were tested using an advanced in-situ DRIFTs reactor.



Julius Gane visits Hebei University

PhD researcher Julius Gane from the University of Leeds visited Hebei University, Tianjin, China for a one month secondment July-August 2017.  Julius was trained in the preparation of a novel MnTiO2 catalyst which can be used in his research into the upgrading of waste biomass pyrolysis oils to produce a gasoline like product and/or chemicals.  He also gained experience in how Hebei University researchers analyse the product oils using FTIR and GC/MS. Julius also gave a presentation of his PhD research to the research group at Hebei University.Julius Hebei

Kenneth Eboatu visits Tsinghua University


PhD researcher Kenneth Eboatu from the University of Leeds visited Tsinghua University, Beijing for a three month secondment from June 2nd to September 1st 2017.  Kenneth worked on the development of a new reactor system for the catalytic pyrolysis-gasification of waste urban wood.  He also gained knowledge in the preparation of a bifunctional catalyst for simultaneous syngas production with CO2 capture to enhance the concentration of hydrogen in the syngas.Kenneth
