Chang Ha Lee
Chang-Ha Lee is a Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Yonsei University, Korea. He received high PhD at the University of Pittsburgh in 1993, and worked in Merck & Co as a postoctoral fellow by 1994. He is charged for a director of Converged Energy Materials Research Center (9-yr program) supported by DAPA.
His research activities include: (i) Gas adsorption Technology – H2 PSA for IGCC, H2 PSA for coal gas, CO2 capture, Adsorption equilibrium and kinetic, Dynamic simulation for adsorption process; (ii) Simulated Moving Bed Process – SMB operating strategy for fine chemical separation; (iii) Supercritical Fluid Technology – Supercritical water oxidation, Biomass cracking, Heavy residue upgrading, Supercritical adsorption for geological CO2 storage, Synthesis of nano-inorganic materials; (iv) Development of new adsorbents – Mesoporous composite for clean fossil fuels, Surface modified core/shell composite for CWA removal, Carbon materials and MgO composites for CO2 capture, porous composites for oleffin/paraffin separation; (v) Multi-scale modelling and dynamic simulation – coal-entrained gasifier, Selexol process with Claus unit, IGCC coal power plant.
He has successfully supervised 28 PhD students and 80 MS students. He has authored/co-authored more than 220 publications in refereed international journals, holds US, EU and Korea patents in the fields of new adsorbents, reactors, reaction processes. Prof. Chang-Ha Lee has been an organizing chair for three international conferencs, and organizing/advisory/scientific committee of many conferences. His works were recognized by many awards such as 2015 PSE model-based innovation prize, award from prime minister of Korea, etc.
