Vincenzo Piemonte is a full professor at the University “Campus Bio-Medico” of Rome (Academic courses on Chemical Engineering Principles, Chemical Reactors, Biotech Processes and Artificial Organs Engineering). He is President of M.Sc. in Chemical Engineering for Sustainable Development and Head of Laboratory of Chemical-physics Fundamentals in Chemical Engineering. He Is also Rector’s Delegate for Research and Innovation in the field Energy and Environment. He has been an Adjunct Professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering of the University “La Sapienza” of Rome.

His research activity is primarily focused on the study of transport phenomena in the artificial and bioartificial organs; new biotreatment technology platform for the elimination of toxic pollutants from water; reuse of waste materials for the production of adsorbent materials for water treatment and zeolitic catalysts for the priolosis of waste plastic products; Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of petroleum-based plastics and bio-based plastics; extraction of valuable substances (polyphenols, tannins) from natural matrices; hydrogen production by membrane reactors; concentrated Solar Power Plants integrated with membrane steam reforming reactor for the production of hydrogen and hydro-methane.

He has about 160 publications on chemical thermodynamics, kinetics, biomedical devices modeling, Bioreactors, LCA studies.
