Volker Hessel's Biography

Volker Hessel, Professor, School of Chemical Engineering, The University of Adelaide

Professor Volker Hessel studied chemistry at Mainz University (PhD in organic chemistry, 1993). In 1994 he entered the Institut für Mikrotechnik Mainz GmbH. In 2002, Prof. Hessel was appointed Vice Director R&D at IMM and in 2007 as Director R&D. In 2005 and 2011, Prof. Hessel was appointed as Part-time and Full Professor at Eindhoven University of Technology, respectively. He was Honorary Professor at TU Darmstadt, Germany and is Guest Professor at Kunming University of Science and Technology, China. Prof. Hessel was appointed as Deputy Dean (Research) and Full Professor at the School of Chemical Engineering in the ECMS Faculty at the University of Adelaide, Australia. He is (co-)author of > 450 peer-reviewed (h-index: 54). He received the AIChE Award “Excellence in Process Development Research” in 2007, the ERC Advanced Grant “Novel Process Windows” in 2010, the ERC Proof of Concept Grant in 2017, the IUPAC ThalesNano Prize in Flow Chemistry in 2016, the FET OPEN Grant in 2016, and the ERC Synergy Grant 2018. He was authority in the 35-man teamed Parliament Enquete Commission "Future of the Chemical Industry" in Nordrhine-Westfalia.

Flow Chemistry has brought chemical reactions to considerable advances. Pharmaceutical manufacturers and their legislative authority (FDA) were the first to decide consequently for continuous production and more has been reported in specialty and fine chemicals.

The process design of flow chemistry remains prime innovation challenge and is not completed by far; certainly not what concerns pilot scale. An intensified flow separation is largely missing. Similarly, implementation of analytical characterization needs to be enlarged and driven by real-world needs, e.g. process-analytical technologies in the frame of pharma’s quality monitoring. For both and more process issues, conceptual and experimental studies are presented. Processes scale with ‘opportunities’ and those are opened by favorable sustainability, which is costs and environmental issues. That ‘cash-flow’ will be given.
