Jo Dewulf is full professor at Ghent University, Department of Sustainable Organic Chemistry and Technology. He holds a Ph.D., M.S. and B.S. in Bioscience Engineering. He focuses on resource consumption and efficiency analysis, relying mainly on thermodynamic principles and life cycle thinking. He makes thorough analyses at the process, plant and overall industrial system level, based on life cycle thinking and thermodynamic principles in order to find out opportunities for improvement (techniques: Exergy Analysis: EA; (Exergetic )Life Cycle Analysis: (E)LCA). Apart from methodological improvements, implementations and collaborations with industrial partners have been put in practice in three areas: fine chemicals and pharma, agro/bio/food, and secondary and primary raw materials. For his work, he obtained the prize of the Laureate of the Royal Academy of Sciences and Arts of Belgium in 2008. During 2013-2015, he worked as senior scientist at the European Commissions’ Joint Research Centre on the sustainable use of natural resources including resource efficiency, criticality, supply resilience, etc. His work is visible on the international scene, with more than 230 papers in international peer reviewed journals included in the Web of Science (Science Citation Index Expanded only), with about 6000 citations and an h-index of 42. He assisted to several international conference organisations and international journals, e.g. serving at the RCR editorial board.
