Dr. Chunfei Wu is a Lecturer at the School of Engineering at the University of Hull, UK. He has worked in the areas of converting renewable and waste resources to energy, fuel, and chemicals through catalytic thermo-chemical routes for more than 10 years. His research interests include biomass pyrolysis, biomass gasification, catalytic steam reforming, CO2 capture and utilisation, carbon nanotubes production from waste plastics, and the application of carbon nanotubes. He has been a principal investigator of several collaborative grants; White Rose Collaboration Fund, Royal Society International Exchange Scheme and Worldwide Universities Network. For example, he has been recently awarded a SUPERGEN Bioenergy small research grant (£20k) to investigate the upgrading of biomass pyrolysis oil using combined catalysis and ultrasound. In addition, he is involved in several EPSRC projects concerned with the thermo-chemical treatment of waste and biomass (e.g. Novel low energy plasma/catalytic gas cleaning process to deliver high quality syngas from the gasification of waste biomass, EPSRC (EP/M013162/1)) and EU project (EU H2020-MSCA-RISE-2014, ~€400 K) in thermo-chemical conversion of waste plastics and biomass. He has published more than 80 peer reviewed journal publications with >1300 citations with an ‘h factor’ of 22 (Google Scholar) in the areas of catalytic thermo-chemical conversion of wastes, and he is a Charted Scientist and a Member of Royal Society of Chemistry.
