Philipp Rudolf von Rohr is professor for process engineering at ETH Zurich since 1992. He has extensive experience as leader in different fields, for example as head of a chemical plant producer (1989-1992), department head of D-MAVT (1999-2001), research council at SNF since 2010 and expert at CTI since 2008. Already during his PhD he started with energy efficiency investigations by optimizing a cooling cycle in industry. His research is focused on transport phenomena of heat and mass transfer. Main achievements are continuous and energy efficient processing in different fields of application. Currently, new process routes are investigated for carbon dioxide hydrogenation and for wood pre-treatment to valorise the production of monomers and biofuel.
