Hydrothermal Carbonisation of Sewage Sludge for Hydrochar Production
Dr. Eric Danso-Boateng is currently a Teaching Fellow at the Department of Chemical Engineering, Loughborough University, Loughborough. He previously worked as a Lecturer and later as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Chemical Engineering, Kumasi Polytechnic, Ghana for 5 years. He is also a Technical Consultant for WasteRes, Sheffield and worked for OWACH Process Solutions in Ghana as an Operations Manager from 2008–2011. He completed his PhD in Chemical Engineering and MSc in Batch Process Engineering from Loughborough University. He is a member of the International Water Association (IWA).
Dr. Danso-Boateng’s research over the past 5 years focuses on conversion of sewage sludge into a clean solid fuel using hydrothermal carbonisation (HTC); integration of HTC and anaerobic digestion for renewable fuel production from sewage sludge; hydrothermal dewatering of sewage sludge; and removal of heavy metals from industrial wastewater using biomass adsorbents. He has publish a number of peer-reviewed journal articles and has presented his research at local, national, and international conferences. He is an Editorial Board member of Austin Chemical Engineering and a Reviewer of more than ten journals.
