Titulaire de la Chaire "Thermodynamique pour les carburants issus de la biomasse"

La chaire "Thermodynamique pour les carburants issus de la biomasse" est détenue par Jean-Charles de HEMPTINNE.

Jean-Charles-de-HemptinneJean-Charles de Hemptinne graduated from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in 1985 with a Chemical Engineering degree followed by a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the MIT. In 2000, he defended a thesis on "Thermodynamic methods in Petroleum engineering" at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1 to receive accreditation to supervise research.
He joined IFP Energies nouvelles in 1991 as a Research Engineer in the Thermodynamics department. He has been a researcher and teacher since 2000 and his activities have included lecturing on refining thermodynamics, coordinating the course module Thermodynamics and processes, setting up new courses for the off-site Master's programs, and supervising, for IFP School, the major in Catalysis and Processes of the Research Master's program. Nominated as IFP School Professor in 2009, he was appointed in January 2010 to the Chair of  "Thermodynamics for biomass fuels".

Jean-Charles de Hemptinne is also a member of several scientific societies and chairs since 2014 the EFCE Working Party on Thermodynamics and Transport Properties. He organized two international scientific conferences "Thermodynamics 2007" and "InMoTher 2012", and two industrial workshops “Industrial Use of Thermodynamics”.  

Jean-Charles de Hemptinne is author or co-author of 59 publications (web of science H-index 19) in refereed journals and 5 IFP Energies nouvelles patents. He is the main author of the manual entitled "Select thermodynamic models for process simulation: A practical guide to a Three Steps Methodology”.
