Research Interest

My research focuses on
  • Determination of optimal processing pathway from a complex network of processing intervals using computer aided tools known as the superstructure optimization
  • Process analysis of value-added chemicals productions, e.g. diethyl ether, acetaldehyde, butadiene, etc., From bioethanol feedstock, using a process simulator to evaluate the process performances in terms of economic, energy utilization and environmental impacts


  • Superstructure optimization of biorefinery integrated system specifically for palm empty fruit bunch and algae
  • Techno-economic analysis of value-added chemicals productions


Superstructure optimization

Productions of value-added chemicals using bioethanol as feedstock: ethanol valorization
