Jean-Claude Charpentier - Biography#

Jean-Claude Charpentier is Professor of Chemical Engineering in the field of multiphase gas-liquid-solid calatytic reactors encountered in the field of air and water depollution and in the field of Process Intensification, at Ecole Supérieure des Industries Chiminques (ENSIC), Institut National Plytechnique de Lorraine (INPL), Nancy-Université, France.

He is now Emeritus CNRS Director of Research at the Laboratoire Réaction et Génie des Procédés LRGP/CNRS/ENSIC/INPL Nancy-Université.

He held a doctoral degree in chemical engineering (PhD 1968) at the University of Nancy (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Industries Chimiques, ENSIC).

J.C. Charpentier was Director (Dean) of ENSIC (1983-1985) and then he was the Scientific Director of the Department of Engineering Science of CNRS, Minister of Research and Technology, Paris (1985 - 1992). In both positions he strongly increased the place of the formation and the research in the field of chemical and process engineering. He was then the Founder and Director (Dean) of the Ecole Supérieure de Chimie Physique Electronique de Lyon from 1992 until 2005. Since 2005, Professor Charpentier has worked at the Laboratoire des Sciences du Génie Chiminique, Departement of Chemical Engineering LSGC/ENSIC/INPL, Nancy-University. The new name of the Laboratory is Laboratoire Réactions et Génie des Procédés since 2010. His research activities concern the catalytic multiphase catalytic gas-liquid - solid reactors encountered in chemical and petrochemical and associate industries.

His different previous and actual positions in the framework of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering and in the Network of laboratory of Excellence (NoE) in chemical engineering has led him to be invited for the last 10 years to a great number of international congresses in chemical engineering to present his view on the future of chemical engineering.

Since 1970, Jean-Claude Charpentier has published more than 190 papers in international scientific journals in the field of multiphase gas-solid-liquid reactors and bioreactors, and more recently in the general field of chemical and process engineering. He is the co-author of 3 books on multiphase chemical reactors.

He is or has been consultant and member of the scientific boards of several chemical and petrochemical companies.
