I graduated from UMIST in 2003 with an MEng in Chemical Engineering and a PhD in modelling adsorption processes. I then joined Air Products where I spent 4 years investigating new adsorbents and implementing them into commercial air separation plants. My next role was to improve several CO2 capture technologies including sorption-enhanced water gas shift (SEWGS) and a new H2 pressure-swing-adsorption process for sour syngas. In addition to these, I also led the piloting of an oxy-coal CO2 capture process at Vattenfall’s 30 MWth test facility in Schwarze Pumpe, Germany. In 2013, I joined Air Products’ operations team at Tees Valley, starting up a first-of-its-kind waste-to-energy facility. Since 2016, I has been working as an independent researcher looking into adsorption process scale-up issues and consulting on waste-to-energy projects.
