Biography

Dr. Athanasios (Thanos) Angelis-Dimakis is a Senior Lecturer in Chemical Engineering and the Subject Area Lead for Chemical Engineering in the School of Applied Sciences at the University of Huddersfield.

He has received his undergraduate diploma in Chemical Engineering from the School of Chemical Engineering in the National Technical University of Athens in 2005 and has completed his PhD Thesis, entitled “Energy Planning under Uncertainty”, in 2011 at the same university. After the completion of his PhD, he remained in Greece for three more years and carried on post-doctoral research on the life cycle assessment of innovative and eco-efficient technologies that can be applied in water use systems (EU Funded FP7 Project “ECOWATER” project). In 2015, he joined the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College in London, as the Co-Investigator of a project on enabling carbon dioxide reutilization (Climate-KIC Funded Project EnCO2re).

In May 2016, he was appointed as a Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at the University of Huddersfield and from 2018 he is a Senior Lecturer in Chemical Engineering. He is responsible for developing and delivering the “Sustainable Industrial Systems” module and the taught component of the "Design Project 2" module. He is also involved in the delivery of three more modules: (i) Advanced Process Development, (ii) Recent Advances in Chemical Engineering and (iii) Computer Aided Product and Process Design. He is also guiding students during their Design Project.

His research interests focus on: Industrial Ecology, Industrial Symbiosis, Life Cycle Assessment, Techno-Economic & Eco-Efficiency Assessment, Process Modelling & Simulation and Water Resources Management. He is currently the the Principal Investigator for University of Huddersfield for two H2020 projects: (i) AquaSPICE Project - Advancing Sustainability of Process Industries through Digital and Circular Water Use Innovations (2020-2023); and (ii) FRIETS - Sustainable optimization of the value chain of added-value fresh and dried berries through the integration of Precision Agriculture management strategies and innovative dehydration and edible coating (2021-2025). His research group currently consists of two Research Associates, five PhD students, and four MEng undergraduate students undertaking their final year projects.

Research Expertise and Interests

Industrial Ecology & Industrial Symbiosis

Industrial ecology assesses the potential of reducing the environmental impact of an industrial process during its life cycle – from the extraction of raw materials to the use of the final product and the waste disposal – in a local, regional and global level. The main objective is the development of circular, closed loop systems through the establishment of symbiotic schemes. The two waste streams, I am currently mostly interested in are carbon dioxide, from any industrial process, and waste streams from agricultural and food processes.

Environmental Impact Assessment

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) can quantify the environmental impact of different processes, practices and technologies. Other metrics of sustainability, such as the eco-efficiency indicators, also enable us to assess the environmental performance of the system but also may also combine it with the system’s economic performance and the environmental costs involved. My research interests evolve around (i) the assessment of novel practices and technologies, mostly related to reuse of waste streams, and (ii) the dynamic / near real-time assessment of industrial processes.
