EFCE recognises research in electrolyte thermodynamics

Written by Christian Ove Carlsson.

Acr89851937199872 1244011Dr Bjørn Maribo-Mogensen, who completed his PhD at the Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, Technical University of Denmark (DTU) under the supervision of Professor Georgios M. Kontogeorgis and Associate Professor Kaj Thomsen, has been named the winner of the 2015 EFCE Excellence Award in Thermodynamics and Transport Properties. 

Dr Maribo-Mogensen, now a Physical Property Specialist at Linde Engineering, Munich, Germany, successfully modelled an equation of state for electrolytes with applications in the oil and gas industry as part of his research. 

He also developed a deeper understanding of the different models currently used for electrostatic interactions, comparing the Debye–Hückel model with the mean spherical approximation (MSA) theory.

ECCE meeting

Written by Jean-Charles de-hemptinne.

I want to bring to your attention that the ECCE board has included explicitly our ‘IUT’ Symposium to the program of ECCE10. This also means that we should make any possible effort to be present and that the most renown members of the thermodynamic community in your country contribute to the program.
