Vivek Ranade's Biography

Vivek Ranade, Professor of Chemical Engineering , Queens University Belfast

Vivek Ranade is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering of Queen’s University Belfast. His research focus is on sustainable energy, water and fine & specialty chemicals. Earlier led chemical engineering at CSIR - National Chemical Laboratory. Contributed significantly to chemical engineering science and practice. Developed performance enhancement solutions, software products and fluidic devices for variety of applications which are commercialized. Developed new insights and methodologies for process intensification. Conceived and led a large program on development of MAGIC (modular, agile, intensified & continuous) processes & plants. Worked also at ETH Zurich, Switzerland (1988-90); TU Delft (1993-94) and University of Twente (1997-98), The Netherlands. Published more than 150 papers and 6 books (h index=42: from Google Scholar). Co-inventor of more than 20 patents. Co-founded two technology companies: Tridiagonal Solutions and VIVIRA Process Technologies.

Energy, water and chemicals encompass all aspects of life and influence wellbeing of every one every day. In these challenging (& interesting) times, there are incessant & increasing demands on resources on one hand and demands & restrictions imposed by global warming & other environmental factors on the other hand. It is therefore essential to develop sustainable solutions for energy, water & chemicals sectors which balance economic, ecological & societal needs. Insights, innovations and intensification are essential for achieving this. In this talk, I will briefly introduce use of our three technology platforms namely (1) MAGIC (modular, agile, intensified & continuous) processes and plants (2) hydrodynamic cavitation and (3) computational flow modelling for realizing desired sustainable solutions. Recent results and some thoughts on path forward will be shared. The approach and results discussed here will hopefully stimulate further developments towards realizing sustainable energy, water and chemicals.
