prof. Bernard Seyfang- 9th EYEC Special Guest

Prof. Dr. Bernhard Seyfang

Bernhard Seyfang received his Diploma from Universität Karlsruhe (TH), specialising in chemicalreaction engineering and electrochemical engineering. He then joined Paul-Scherrer-Institut to workon the simplification on polymer electrolyte fuel cell and received his PhD from ETH Zürich. Ten yearsof industrial experience, in a start-up company and in an enterprise producing chemical and pharmaceutical products, resulted in several publications covering topics about process engineering in industrial applications.

Since April 2018 Bernhard Seyfang is professor for chemical reaction engineering at TH Bingen, a university of applied sciences cooperating with the whole range of chemical and pharmaceutical companies in the wider area around Frankfurt. His research and development interests cover process optimisation procedures, surface characterisation of additively manufactured devices for process engineering applications as well as extraction centrifuges.

prof. Andrzej Stankiewicz – 9th EYEC Special Guest

prof. Andrzej Stankiewicz

Full Professor and Chair of Process Intensification at Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, and former Director of TU Delft Process Technology Institute. With more than 40 years of industrial and academic research experience he is author of numerous scientific publications on process intensification, chemical reaction engineering and industrial catalysis.
Prof. Stankiewicz is one of the pioneers of process intensification. He is principal author and co-editor of the world’s first book on Process Intensification. The book was in 2012 translated to Chinese. Prof. Stankiewicz is also the author of the first full-size academic course on Process Intensification.

He is the Editor of Chemical Engineering and Processing: Process Intensification (Elsevier) and Series Editor of the Green Chemistry Books Series (Royal Society of Chemistry). He was founder and first Chairman of the Working Party on Process Intensification at the European Federation of Chemical Engineering. He currently chairs the Board of the European Process Intensification Centre (EUROPIC).
Current research interests of Prof. Stankiewicz focus on control of molecular interactions and intensification of chemical reactions using electricity-based energy fields (e.g. laser, microwave, UV). The research in that area has brought him prestigious Advanced Investigator Grant from the European Research Council.

More recently, Prof. Stankiewicz has initiated and coordinates the H2020 “ADREM” project on methane valorization using alternative forms of energy in modular catalytic reactors.


Aleksandra Ziemińska- Stolarska, PhD – 9th EYEC Scientific Commission member

Aleksandra Ziemińska-Stolarska, PhD

Aleksandra Ziemińska-Stolarska since October 2016 works as an assistant professor at the Faculty of Heat and Mass Transfer Processes, Lodz University of Technology. She has completed an Erasmus training course in Biochemistry at Evora University, Portugal and also an internship at the Norwegian Institute for Water Research (NIVA) Oslo, Norway in the frame of the MONSUL project.

She has taken part in realization of many international scientific projects including: Waterpraxis (2008-2011) “From theory and plans to eco-efficient and sustainable practices to improve the status of the Baltic Sea.”; Cluster: “Baltic Impulse – saving the Baltic Sea waters” reducing pollution eutrophication in the Baltic Sea (2012-2013); INVITES (2016-2019) – “Innovative Equipment for Intensified Recovery of CO2 from Flue Gases”; HIPERION (2019-2023, Horizon 2020) “HybrId Photovoltaics for Efficiency Record using Integrated Optical Technology”.

Her research activity covers the area of mathematical modeling of water quality, laboratory analysis of water and sediments, CFD simulations of hydrodynamic in large water bodies and LCA analysis. She is an author and co-author of over 15 papers as well as a co-founder of the biotechnology startup AKRIMTECH. The company is at the stage of creating a prototype of a high-performance bioreactor for multiplying stem cells.
