Paul Cobden
Applied Catalysis - ECN
• 18 years at Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN), working in the applied catalysis group. He first worked on micro-reactor technology for hydrogen production and combinatorial catalysis, initiating the first combined catalyst-sorbent processes at ECN, before beginning in 2004 on sorption-enhanced reactions as project leader. Since 2008 his main responsibilities are in for material choices made in solid looping cycle processes, including all sorption-enhanced processes and chemical looping processes with the group sustainable process technology. As such he is also member of the scientific committee IEA GHG – High Temperature solid looping cycles network, and from 2012 started to take roles as either coordinator or in the management board of EU funded CO2 capture projects for different industrial applications; to date STEPWISE, LEILAC and ASCENT. His focus within these projects is heavily skewed towards exploiting the underlying scientific principles to the fullest extent.
• 1st Class Honours in Chemistry at the University of East Anglia (1992). During this time he won 5 prizes for outstanding performance in examinations from industrial sponsors, 3 x Exxon and 2 x Aldrich, and a Promising Young Scientist award from Beechams in 1991, Ultra High Vacuum equipment for evaluation automotive catalysis applications, non-linear of the NO-H2 reaction over Pt-group metals
