PLENARY LECTURES

ROLAND CLIFT

Centre for Environment and Sustainability, University of Surrey - Guildford (UK)

 

Sustainability: Putting the process into context

Emeritus Professor of Environmental Technology and founding Director of the Centre for Environmental Strategy at the University of Surrey; previously Head of the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering at the University of Surrey and past Executive Director and President of the International Society for Industrial Ecology.  He is Adjunct Professor in Chemical and Biological Engineering at the University of British Columbia (Canada) and Visiting Professor in Environmental System Analysis at Chalmers University (Sweden), and in Industrial Ecology at the University of Coimbra (Portugal). His research is concerned with system approaches to environmental management and industrial ecology,including life cycle assessment and energy systems.  In 2017 he was awarded the George E. Davis medal of the Institution of Chemical Engineers.
Roland is a past member of the UK Eco-labelling Board, of the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution, the Science Advisory Council of the Department of the Environment and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and of the Royal Society/Royal Academy Working Group which produced an influential report on “Nanoscience and Nanotechnologies: opportunities and uncertainties” (2004).  In 2004-5, he acted as Expert Adviser to a House of Lords Select Committee enquiry into energy efficiency.  He was a contributing author and Review Editor for the 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC, 2014). 

PEDRO LOZANO
University of Murcia - Murcia (Spain)  
Clean biocatalytic processes in ionic liquids and supercritical fluids

Professor Pedro Lozano received his BSc/MSc in Sciences (Chemistry) from the University of Murcia in June 1984, and his PhD in Sciences (Chemistry) from the University of Murcia in July 1988. Between, 1990 and 1991, he spent two years of post-doctoral formation at the Centre de Bioingénierie Gilbert Durand, Toulouse (France). In 1993, he returned to the Faculty of Chemistry at the University ofMurcia(Spain) as Lecturer in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, being finally promoted to Full Professor in 2004. Between 1996-2014, he was Assistant Dean of the Faculty of Chemistry and coordinator of the Biochemistry Degree at the University of Murcia, and since 2014 he is the Dean of the sameFaculty.Prof. Lozano has also been Visiting Professor at the Universities of Rennes-France (2002) and Bordeaux-France (2013). His research activity hasalways been related with enzyme technology under non-conventional media, being focused on the use of biocatalysts ionic liquids and supercritical fluids for developing green chemical processes. He is the author of more than 140 publications (i.e. research papers, reviews, book chapters, etc), and more than 200 scientific Congress contributions. Prof Lozano was obtained the 7th IQS-European Award on Enzyme Technology (2003), and the Fellow position at the Royal Society of Chemistry (2017). Now, Prof. Lozano is regional editor of the journal Current Green Chemistry, as well as member of the advisory board of Molecules and Mini-Reviews in Organic Chemistry journals.
