Henri Spanjers is associate professor at TU Delft since 2009 and leader of the Industry Water group of the Sanitary Engineering section. He holds an MSc in Environmental Engineering (Wageningen University 1985) and a PhD in wastewater treatment (Wageningen University 1993). He worked at the department of Agricultural, Environmental and Systems Technology of Wageningen University, at the Lund Institute of Technology in Sweden, at the University of Ottawa in Canada, at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in Ispra, Italy, and at Ghent University in Belgium. He was project director with Lettinga Associates Foundation in Wageningen. Henri Spanjers is reviewer of various international journals including Water Research, Water Science and Technology, Environmental Technology, Bioresource Technology, Journal of Agricultural Science and Technology, Bioprocess and Biosystems Engineering, and expert review committee member for various national and international research funding organizations. He was member of the scientific and programme committee, and session chair of various international conferences. He is committee member of the Royal Netherlands Water Network (KNW) Theme Group on IT-Applications in the Water Sector and secretary of the International Water Association Specialist Group on Anaerobic Digestion. His research interest is in the application of anaerobic digestion and instrumentation control and automation in industrial water management, more specifically focused on resource recovery and reuse, and biological treatment under extreme conditions. He has over 150 publications of which 81 in peer reviewed journals, and his H-Index is 23. During his 12-year career with Lettinga Associates Henri Spanjers has been responsible for many national and international consultancy projects. He has been working group leader in various EU projects and coordinator of several national research projects. He is currently coordinating 6 research projects and is daily supervisor of 6 PhD researchers.
Graduated as an Environmental Engineer from the Wageningen University. His PhD focused on activated sludge process respirometry. He worked at the Lund Institute of Technology in Sweden, at the University of Ottawa in Canada, at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission in Ispra, Italy. From 1999 to 2012 he was project director with Lettinga Associates Foundation in Wageningen. In addition, from 2006 to 2008, he was part-time professor of modeling and simulation of biosystems at Ghent University, Belgium. Since 2012 he is full-time associate professor in the section of Sanitary Engineering, Department of Water Management, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences at Delft University of Technology, where he is head of the Industry Water group. He is Editor-in-Chief of the Water Resources and Industry journal. Currently he is a visiting professor at the Université Laval, Québec, Canada.
