Professor Dr. Javier Herguido received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degree in chemistry–chemical engineering in 1987, and his Ph.D. in Science in 1991. He is presently a Professor of Chemical Engineering at the School of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Zaragoza, Spain, where he heads the Master’s degree in Research in Chemical and Environmental Engineering. He has been Vice-Director of this School, Secretary of the Research Council of that University, etc. In 1993 he held the chair of the Hélioparc Pau-Pyrénées Technological Center (France). He has been Visiting Professor at several research Centers and Universities (e.g., CNRS Lab. Physico-Chimie Moléculaire). In his research activity, Dr. Herguido is a member of the Catalysis, Molecular Separations and Reactor Engineering Group (CREG), and also of the Aragón Institute of Engineering Research (I3A). His current research interests are mainly in the area of Chemical Reactor Engineering, including: fluidized bed reactors with oxidizing and reducing zones for selective oxidation processes and for catalytic dehydrogenations; hydrogen technologies; membrane reactors and processes intensification. He has been participant in more than 30 Research Programs, in most of them as principal researcher. His scientific production includes: about 70 refereed papers (comprising 2 invited reviews) in journals such as AIChEJ, Appl. Catal., Cat. Today, CEJ., CES, IECR, Int. J. Hydrogen Energy, J. Catal., J. Power Sources, Powder Tech., Studies Surf. Sci. Catal., among others; over 180 presentations at scientific meetings; 2 patents; and the book “Chemical Reaction Engineering” (1999, Ed. Sintesis, Madrid). He has received different awards including the 3M Foundation Innovation Award (Environment category) and the Doctorate Extraordinary Prize. He has been organizer of several national and international conferences, and he is an active referee and reviewer for many scientific journals.
