The use of ultrasound in the transition to flow processes
Bio
Prof. Dr. Ir. Tom Van Gerven is professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering of KU Leuven (Belgium). His research focuses on process intensification, in particular by the use of external and localised energy sources (ultrasound, light), to improve transport phenomena (mass and energy transfer, mixing) and chemical activation with the aim of resource efficiency and recovery. Fields in which these energy sources have been applied include solvent extraction, crystallisation, leaching, metal purification and CO2 valorisation. Another area of process intensification is the integration of different processes, where the group has worked on integrated hydro- and pyrometallurgy flow sheets and mechanochemical activation. In general the developed technologies are applicable to chemical synthesis and environmental applications.

Potential Conflicts of Interest

All authors must disclose all relationships or interests that could inappropriately influence or bias their work. This should be conveyed in a separate ‘Conflict of Interest’ statement preceding the ‘Acknowledgments’ and ‘References’ sections at the end of the manuscript.

Copyright

MDPI, the owner of the Sciforum.net platform, is an open access publisher. We believe that authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting a communication paper to this conference, you retain the copyright of your paper, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this paper online on the Sciforum.net platform. This means you can easily submit your paper to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher (if required by that publisher).
