Chemical Technology

The Laboratory for Chemical Technology (LCT) integrates chemical science and engineering in its research on catalysis, polymerization, kinetics, reactor design and process design. LCT is part of the Department of Materials, Textiles and Chemical Engineering within the Faculty of Engineering and Architecture at Ghent University in Belgium and member of the Centre for Sustainable Chemistry (CSC) of Ghent University. LCT aims at research excellence and bottom-up innovation in the framework of technological, industrial, and societal challenges.

Lab to pilot scale-up of a chemical looping process for super-dry reforming of CO2 into CO

“After his graduation as chemical engineer at Ghent University’s Laboratory for Chemical Technology in 2014, Lukas Buelens continued the study commenced during his master thesis research as IWT doctoral research fellow. His doctoral research focused on the Development of Novel Materials for Carbon dioxide Capture and Conversion (DyNaMiC³ project) under supervision by Prof. Vladimir Galvita and Prof. Guy Marin. Lukas successfully defended his PhD in October 2018. He then briefly continued this research during a postdoc at the LCT. In March 2019, he started working as innovation performance consultant at Ayming. One year later, Lukas rejoined Prof. Vladimir Galvita’s research group at the Laboratory for Chemical Technology as postdoctoral researcher, where he will be working on a Flemish Moonshot project, aiming to upscale his PhD research on chemical looping carbon dioxide valorization from lab to pilot scale.”
