Prof. Charles Xu from University of Western Ontario visited our Lab

 

On November 14, 2019, as invited by Prof. Zhen Fang, Prof. Charles Chunbao Xu from University of Western Ontario (UWO) in Canada and Dr. Yongsheng Zhang from Zhengzhou University visited our College of Engineering for the academic exchanges and research collaborations. Prof. Xu has a close collaboration with Prof. Fang for a long history in research and student exchanges.


        In the afternoon, Prof. Xu gave a lecture to teachers and students on "Conversion of agricultural biomass into bio-based chemicals and materials". He briefly introduced about UWO and its main research directions, including the works on biomass resources, sludge into bioenergy, biofuels and bio-based chemicals, and presented his Lab’s main research topics and results in detail, particularly showed us how to produce economic viable materials and chemicals besides biofuels from biomass wastes. The academic lecture brings inspiration to the future development and directions of renewable energy and biomass resources utilizations.

 

                           

After the presentation, Prof. Xu and Dr. Zhang visited our laboratory guided by Prof. Fang. Prof. Fang gave a detailed introduction about the main research directions, research progress and various instruments of the laboratory.

Professor Charles Chunbao Xu, fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering and a tenured professor of the Department of Chemical Engineering at UWO in Canada, is a world-renown expert in the field of biomass refining. He is the Co-editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Chemical Reaction Engineering (IJCRE, an SCI Journal). In recent years, he has published nearly 200 papers in International academic journals with 7,700 cites and H index of 47.

 

加拿大工程院院士徐春保教授一行来访我院

 

20191114日,应方真教授邀请,加拿大西安大略大学徐春宝教授和郑州大学张永生博士一行来访我院,进行学术交流与科研合作。徐教授与方教授在科研和学生交流方面有着长期的密切合作。

下午,徐春保教授为我院师生作了“Conversion of agricultural biomass into bio-based chemicals and materials”的专题报告,详细介绍了加拿大西安大略大学历史和主要研究方向,包括生物质、有机固废和污泥转化为生物能源、生物燃料和生物基化学品等方面的研究。特别向我们展示了如何利用农业生物质废弃物生产生物燃料以外的经济可行的材料和化学制品。本次学术讲座对可再生能源和生物质资源利用的未来发展和方向具有启发意义。

报告结束后,徐春保教授一行在方真教授的带领下参观了我们实验室,方老师为其详细介绍了目前实验室的主要研究方向、研究进展及实验室的各种仪器设备。

徐春保教授,现为加拿大工程院院士、加拿大西安大略大学化工系终身教授,生物质精炼领域的世界著名专家。担任SCI期刊化学反应工程国际期刊(IJCRE)的共同总编辑。近年来在学术期刊上发表论文近200篇,被引用7700余次,H因子47
