Keynote Speaker One
Prof. Jian Chen
Tsinghua University, Beijing, China
Education and Experience:
Professor Chen Jian received his B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. in chemical engineering at Department of Chemical Engineering, Tsinghua University in 1985, 1990 and 1994, respectively. He has worked in the department since 1990, becoming Professor of Chemical Engineering in 2001. He worked as a visiting scholar in Schlumberger, Canada in 2002.
Thermodynamics and Separation Engineering
Research interests cover 1) Molecular thermodynamics of fluid properties and phase equilibria for fluids across the critical point, unsymmetrical fluids in size or interaction, fluids with association. 2) Molecular design for solvents based on the quantitative structure-property relationship. 3) Engineering thermodynamics and process design for separation processes such as gas absorption, solvent extraction, and so on.
CO2 capture technology
Recently CO2 absorption used for greenhouse gas CO2 capture and sequestration CCS is the main research area, including molecular design of new capture solvents, thermodynamics and kinetics of vapor-liquid absorption systems, process simulation and optimization, technological design and intensifications.
Keynote Speaker Two
Assoc. Prof. Zhigang Tang
Tsinghua University, Beijing, ChinaZhi-Gang Tang was born in Lanzhou City, Gansu Province, China, on April 1, 1970. He got his bachelor degree at Chemical Engineering Department, Tsinghua University, Beijing, in June of 1993. He got his Ph.D. at Chemical Engineering Department, Tsinghua University, Beijing, in April of 1998. In 1998, he was hired as Lecturer of Chemical Engineering Department, Tsinghua University, Beijing. In 2000 (to now), he was hired as Associate Professor of State Key Laboratory of Chemical Engineering, Chemical Engineering Department, Tsinghua University, Beijing. He teaches two graduate-oriented courses “Fundamental in Separation Process” and “Generality of low-carbon process”. His current research interests cover 1
) Fundamental and application of identified methods in vapor-liquid mass transfer; 2) Process and equipments in clear and low-carbon industrial production; 3) Trapping CO2 from syngas by hybrid technology.
