Dr. ir. G.A. (Georgios Archimidis) Tsalidis

Profile

George holds an MEng in mechanical engineering from  Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and an MSc in Industrial Ecology from Delft University of Technology (TUD) and Leiden University. George obtained his PhD in Process Engineering from TUD in 2018. He focused on the technical and environmental performance of torrefied wood gasification. The aim of the project was whether torrefaction results in a positive effects on permanent gases and tars (mainly heavy hydrocarbons) formed during gasification.

Research

Industrial brine is water with a high saline concentration may contain materials that are considered of high importance from the European Union. The Zero Brine project concerns the redesign of the waste water treatment train of the European process industry. The objective of the project is becoming a guide for decreasing the environmental footprint of the process industry, improve European energy security and identify possible collaborations for achieving circular economy.

The Zero Brine project concerns the redesign of the waste water treatment train of the European process industry. The objective of the project is becoming a guide for decreasing the environmental footprint of the process industry, improve European energy security and identify possible collaborations for achieving circular economy. My part concerns evaluating the environmental, economic and social performance of the affected industrial systems, and developing framework conditions for innovation.
