Biography

Christoph Pfeifer is full professor for Process Engineering of Renewable Resources at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU).

He is head of the Institute of Chemical and Energy Engineering, deputy head of the Department of Material Sciences and Process Engineering and member of the Senate of the University. Ongoing research focuses on thermo-chemical fuel conversion ranging from hydrothermal carbonization and pyrolysis to provide biochar for soil applications to fluidized bed gasification of biomass and waste.

He is experienced in catalytical processes for gas cleaning and in operation of fluidized bed cold flow models as well as high temperature laboratory units of different sizes. Further, he represents Austria in the IEA Bioenergy Task 33 on Biomass Gasification.

He is member of several high level international scientific conferences (eg. Conference on Fluidized Bed Technology, Fluidization, SEEP, …), associate editor of “Carbon Resources Conversion Journal” and regular reviewer for several high level scientific journals (eg. Energy & Fuels, Fuel, Chemical Engineering, Ind. Eng. Chem. Res, …).
