Prof Ben Anthony

Dr Anthony was a Professor in Energy Process Systems at Cranfield University. His interests include thermal energy processes that can offer pure CO2 streams for sequestration, and gasification technology, both in its high-pressure and atmospheric forms, and coal and waste combustion in FBC. Dr Anthony is the author of 295+ journal papers on various aspects of combustion, gasification and CCS, along with a similar number of conference papers, 19 book chapters, and he is the co-editor of the first book on Pressurized Fluidized Beds and a book with Dr Paul Fennel on Ca and Chemical Looping. His current R&D pursuits are strongly focused on calcium looping cycles, oxy-fired CFBC technology and pressurized, entrained-flow gasification and lime-based chemistry. Dr Anthony is an adjunct Professor with the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department at the University of Ottawa, and a guest Professor with Southeast University in Nanjing, China.  He is also a Fellow of the Institution of Chemical Engineers, the Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institute of Energy and a Chartered Engineer.
