Born in Castel San Pietro Terme (BO), 17 August 1988.
Fixed-term researcher in the area of Chemical Plants. The main research interests are:
- Modelling of the removal processes of acid pollutants in Waste-to-energy facilities. Experimental investigation on the reactivity of solid sorbents for HCl and SO2 capture. Development and validation of models for the description of gas-solid reactions.
- Optimization of flue gas cleaning systems in Waste-to-energy facilities. Analysis of the economic and environmental performance of alternative configurations for the emission control in waste combustion. Joint research activities with HERAmbiente, Termomeccanica Ecologia, ARPAE Emilia-Romagna, Brianza Energia Ambiente.
- Development of novel sorbents for CO2 capture. Testing of novel sorbents, either synthetic or obtained from industrial waste streams, for CO2 capture by means of the carbonate looping process. Collaboration with ETH Zürich (Switzerland).
2017 PhD Chemical and Process Engineering, University of Bologna, with a dissertation on the Analysis of sustainable technologies for acid gas removal (supervisor: prof. V. Cozzani). Visiting student at ETH Zürich (Switzerland) in 2016 and 2017 under the supervision of prof. C.R. Müller.
2012 MSc Environmental Engineering, University of Bologna, with honours.
2010 BSc Environmental Engineering, University of Bologna,with honours.
