Plasma reactor systems: design, optimization, up scaling and evaluation

Evangelos Delikonstantis was born in Larisa, Greece on April 19, 1989. He earned his bachelor and master’s degree in chemical engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 2012. In 2015, he completed the Professional Doctorate in Engineering from the Delft University of Technology, the Netherlands, specializing in Process and Equipment Design. For his thesis, he worked on the conceptual process design of a novel plastic chemical recycling process. Afterwards, he joined USG Engineering Professionals, serving as engineering consultant. In 2016, he joined the Catholic University of Leuven (KU Leuven) as a Ph.D. candidate. His project focused on the development of plasma-assisted reactor systems for rich-in-methane gas streams valorisation to olefins. His latest interests and research activities are focused on plasma reactor systems up scaling and plasma-assisted processes evaluation.
