Prof.dr.ir. W. de Jong

profile

Biography

Wiebren de Jong currently is full  professor of Large-Scale Energy storage at the department Process & Energy (faculty 3mE). In this area he investigates different novel process concepts to store electricity in fuels and bulk chemicals with an emphasis on scale-up of these processes and integration with biomass conversion. He investigates conversion and storage processes including (bio-)CO2 utilization together with hydrogen.  

He studied chemical engineering at Twente University and subsequently followed a PDEng in process technology (deign) in the same university . After a post-graduate period at Stuttgart University (Germany), he started a PhD study in the field of biomass gasification at Delft University of Technology, followed by an assistant and associate professorship there in the Energy Technology section (3mE) in the field of biomass to syngas conversion and biorefinery. In 2016 he became honorary professor at Groningen University in this field with a link to the coupling of biomass conversion processes to energy storage in biorefinery concepts.
