Salvador Ordóñez (1972) is Full Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Environmental Technology of the University of Oviedo since 2012. He has got a PhD in Chemical Engineering in 1999 at the University of Oviedo, and he became Assistant Professor (1999-2006) and then Associate Professor (2006-2012).
He was awarded the Young Research Award (< 40 years old) of the Iberoamerican Federation of Catalysis Societies (FISOCAT) in 2010 for his research trajectory. Likewise, in 2011 he was recognized as one of the most promising young Chemists in Spain by the Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry in the International Year of Chemistry.
His research activity was carried out both in the University of Oviedo and in different foreign universities: Delft University of Technology (NL), Catholic University of Leuven (BE), Polytechnic University of Torino (IT) and University of Berkeley (USA). His interests are focused on the application of heterogeneous catalysis and chemical reactor technology for the remediation of different environmental problems (VOC abatement, treatment of wastes and wastewaters containing organochlorinated pollutants, NOx reduction, etc), as well as in the development of sustainable- and renewable feedstock-based processes (membrane reactors for hydrogen production, manufacture of fuels and chemicals from non-edible biomass using catalytic processes).
He is author or co-author of more than 130 scientific publications in international journals, four patents and several chapter books. This work has been presented in national and international conferences. He has also participated in research and technological advice contracts with different companies.
Prof. Ordóñez is also member of the Spanish Society of Catalysis and the Spanish Royal Chemistry Society, and is member of the scientific board of the Spanish Association of Zeolites (GEZ), as well as member of several scientific committees of different Congresses, and is the Editorial Board of several journals in the catalysis field.
