Christian Hornung's Biography

Christian Hornung, Research Group Leader, CSIRO

Christian H. Hornung is a Group Leader and Principal Research Scientist at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) in Melbourne, Australia, which he joined in 2010. He received a Masters degree in Chemical Engineering from the Friedrich-Alexander University in Erlangen, Germany in 2004 and his PhD in Chemical Engineering from Cambridge University, UK in 2008, where he worked in the groups of Prof. Malcolm R. Mackley and Prof. Steven V. Ley. Christian has more than 20 years of experience working in flow chemistry for chemical manufacture of APIs, fine chemicals and related industries, on the interface between chemistry and engineering. Christian is the director of FloWorks, CSIRO’s Centre for Industrial Flow Chemistry, which is a $10M technology transfer facility aimed at translating new continuous flow processes into production. Christian’s research interest includes microreactor engineering, additive manufacturing, organic synthesis, heterogeneous catalysis, machine learning and polymer chemistry and he is currently leading a large multi-institutional effort to build a renewable hydrogen ecosystem using chemical hydrogen storage in Australia. Most recently Christian has been awarded an International Hydrogen Research Fellowship from the Australian Government, which allowed him to conduct several months of research at the collaborating Helmholtz Institute Erlangen-Nürnberg in Germany.

With a design guided by CFD, 3D-printed from base metals such as stainless steel, and coated with a catalyst using either cold spraying, electroplating or wash coating, catalytic static mixers are used to replace fixed bed columns in continuous flow heterogeneous catalysis. The deposition methods have been optimized in order to minimize catalyst leaching levels, resulting in only ppb levels of catalyst contamination in the product. We have demonstrated the versatility of this technology for gas-liquid hydrogenations in the pharmaceutical, fine chemical and related industries.
