Procesos Catalíticos y Valorización de Residuos

Grupo de Investigacion

El grupo PROCAT-VARES trabaja en la propuesta, progreso e innovación de procesos de interés energético y medioambiental. El objetivo es desarrollar, con un nivel puntero internacional, líneas de investigación en Ingeniería de la Reacción Química que sean de máxima actualidad y que estén enfocadas al desarrollo sostenible. El desarrollo de esta actividad supone la formación de investigadoras/es y tecnólogas/os, la transmisión de conocimientos a la comunidad científico -tecnológica internacional en forma de publicaciones y la colaboración con el sector industrial, en temas que conjugan el interés académico, tecnológico, social e industrial.

Recently we have published a new paper in Powder Technology, entitled "Quantitative assessment of the prominence of fish hooks in hydrocyclones over different operation and geometrical parameters". According to our work, the fish hook effect is a real fact that affects the performance of hydrocyclones, proposing two new parameters for their characterization: dip and peak efficiencies. ...

We are glad to present one of our last publications, in Chemical Engineering Science, entitled "A novel alternative method for pistachio nuts splitting using conical spouted beds". Hydrodynamic runs have been conducted to ascertain the configurations that are suitable for low temperature batch drying and splitting of pistachio nuts. The results show that a single cycle of wetting, drying and...

During June 21-22, Palash Kumar Mollick participated in the CATCHEM-2023 conference, held in Valencia. He presented a poster about the thermodynamic assessment of the sorption enhanced steam reforming of pyrolysis volatiles and delivered an oral communication about the comparison between the conventional and plasma catalyzed steam reforming processes for green hydrogen production from...

Next July 14 at 11:30 in the Board Room of the Faculty of Education (Leioa Campus), Xabier Sukunza Pérez will defend the Doctoral Thesis entitled "Scaling up of fountain confined conical spouted bed dryers", carried out under the supervision of Professors Martin Olazar and Roberto Aguado.

Proud to share our latest article, in collaboration with Prof. Stefan Heinrich and his group, from the Institute of Solids Process Engineering and Particle Technology (Hamburg University of Technology). In this work, derived from the PhD Thesis developed by Aitor Atxutegi, we propose the use of CFD-DEM for the simulation of conical spouted beds with internal devices and different types of...

Last week, our colleagues Iratxe Crespo, Onintze Parra and Ander Portillo attended ISCRE27 conference in Quebec, Canada. They had the opportunity to share their latest results on hydrocracking and CO2 valorization!

Beatriz Valle, Iratxe Crespo and Ana Gayubo are proud to have participated in the 11th World Congress of Chemical Engineering (WCCE11), held from 4th to 8th June in Buenos Aires, Argentina. These collaborative works with UNNOBA and CONICET are the outcome of the research conducted by Eugenia Chiosso during her time in CPWV ehugroup. The research is focused on investigating the behavior of...

Next week our colleagues Iratxe Crespo, Onintze Parra and Ander Portillo will be attending to ISCRE-27, international conference on chemical reaction enginerring in Quebec, Canada, to explain our latest results on minimizing overcracking in hydrocracking process and CO2 valorization into fuels and commodities.

Suní Rodríguez, Iratxe Crespo and Sergio Iglesias have attended the MECCE 2023 congress in Barcelona. They have delivered four oral presentations about the effect of the impregnation method for catalysts used in the hydrocracking of a VGO/PW blend, the matrix addition to a Pd/Y catalyst in the hydrocracking of preteated LCO, the reproducibility of the cycles in the sorption enhanced steam...

Last Saturday, our colleagues Eva Epelde and Onintze Parra participated as evaluators in the science fair organized by Elhuyar. They had the opportunity to evaluate projects of 3rd and 4th ESO students and learn a lot from their proposals!
