Dr. Arturo Macchi

Research interests are in fundamental and applied multiphase reaction engineering. Some current projects are: Investigation of the hydrodynamics and transport phenomena in heavy oil fluidized bed hydroprocessors (e.g., LC-FinerSM) for yield improvement, Development of novel continuous multiphase flow micro-reactors for intensifying the synthesis of fine chemical and pharmaceuticals, Synthesis of gas hydrates in a slurry bubble column for the transportation of natural gas, and Development of CO2 capture systems for the production of hydrogen/power/steam from thermal conversion of fuels.


The Macchi lab supervises students from graduate programs in Chemical Engineering.
