Jan Harmsen for Sustainable Industrial Process Innovation
For 33 years I have worked in Research, Development, Design and Operation as a Process Engineer at Shell. Until December 2013 I was also a part-time Professor of Sustainable Chemical Technology at Groningen University. Since 2010 you can request advice and courses. Clients come from a variety of industries, such as:
- Fine / bulk chemicals
- Life sciences
Take a look at the courses and workshops the Process Technology Academy can offer your company’s sustainable goals and needs.
Recently I have provided a risk assessment and risk mitigation advice for a large process development project. Something of interest to your project?
