Professor Bo Leckner
Bo Leckner graduated at Chalmers University of Technology
in 1962, presented his doctor thesis “Radiation in gas fired
furnaces” in 1972, and was appointed a professor in 1982.
He has been active at Chalmers University since then with
the exception of one year spent at the Moscow Energy Institute.
His research work concerns topics related to fluidized
bed conversion of solid fuels. Recently, the research has been
focused on CO2 reduction involving fluidized bed. Most projects
have been carried out at Chalmers University, with a
considerable co-operation with external co-workers from
all over the world.
Assoc. Professor Sonja Enestam
Sonja Enestam works as R&D Manager at Valmet, where her responsibilities include technology development related to carbon neutral energy solutions. An important part of her job is to interact with the research community and implement research results into Valmet’s existing and future product portfolio.
Sonja holds a PhD in high temperature corrosion from Åbo Akademi university and is today an associate professor at Åbo Akademi.
Professor Fabrizio Scala
Fabrizio Scala graduated at University of Naples Federico II in 1995,
where he got a PhD in 1999. He was a researcher at the
Institute of Research on Combustion of CNR from 2001 until 2014,
when he was appointed associate professor at the University of Naples Federico II. From 2020 he is full professor of Chemical Plants. Presently he is the chair of
the Italian Section of the Combustion Institute and
associate editor of the journal Fuel Processing Technology.
His activities, both modelling and experimental, are related to the fields of chemical & environmental engineering, and fluidized bed technology. More specifically: combustion, gasification & pyrolysis processes in fluidized bed reactors; carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) techniques (calcium looping, chemical looping, oxy-combustion, methanation); combustion pollutants abatement (SOx, NOx, Hg).
