About Hartmut Schoenmakers

Professor Andrzej Gorak is Chair of Fluid Separations at the Technical University of Dortmund, Germany and Professor at the Technical University of Lodz, Poland. He received his PhD from the Institute of Chemical Engineering at the Technical University of Lodz where he continued his work as a senior researcher. He then assumed the same position at Henkel KGaA in Dusseldorf. In 1992, Prof. Gorak completed his postdoctoral "Habilitation" at RWTH Aachen and was appointed Professor at the Department of Chemical Engineering at the Technical University of Dortmund. Between 1996 and 2000, he was Chair of Fluid Separations at Essen University, before returning to and taking over the Chair at the TU Dortmund. Dr. Hartmut Schoenmakers studied physics and chemistry at the University Heidelberg, Germany. He joined BASF AG in 1976 where he worked as a process engineer in the field of fluid separations with a focus on hybrid and reactive processes, miniplant and scale up technology, and as project manager. Further interests have been process simulation and CAPE concepts. He has been a member of various national and international scientific associations. In 1987, he received the German Arnold-Eucken-Award.
