About the Project
In particular, this project aims to combine first-principles (physics-based) and data-driven process modelling, in order to achieve process intensification in capturing Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) from gas effluents. Current VOC capture technology faces dire challenges due to the highly variant incoming feed composition and organic solvent loads, but also due to significant outsourcing and maintenance costs for adsorbent regeneration.
The Gerogiorgis Research Group at the School of Engineering (University of Edinburgh) employs high-fidelity first-principles modelling and advanced numerical methods for systematic synthesis, design and optimisation of complex chemical processes, with emphasis on continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing and comparative technoeconomic analyses for pharmaceuticals, bioproducts, food/drinks and energy. Their research is recognised with multiple IChemE Global Award distinctions, an Academy of Athens research publication prize, and a recent Royal Academy of Engineering (RAEng) Industrial Fellowship.
