1st International Conference on Bioresource Technology for Bioenergy, Bioproducts & Environmental Sustainability

Conference Chairman

Deepak Pant, VITO-Flemish Institute for Technological Research, Belgium

Dr. Deepak Pant is a Senior Scientist at the Flemish Institute for Technological Research (VITO), Belgium. His research focuses on bioenergy, specifically, the design and optimization of bio-electrochemical systems for energy recovery from wastewater and microbial electrosynthesis for production of value-added chemicals through electrochemically driven bio-processes. He has 1 book (published by Springer), 1 Patent, 76 peer-reviewed publications with >4380 citations (h-index 35) and 20 book chapters to his credit. He is a member of several scientific communities including ISMET, ISE, BES, BRSI, IFIBiop and AMI. He serves as Editorial board member for the Journals: ‘Bioresource Technology’, ‘Electronic Journal of Biotechnology’, ‘Biofuel Research Journal’, ‘Heliyon’ and ‘Frontiers in Environmental Science’. He served on the scientific committee for 5th MFC conference (ISMET 5, Arizona, 2015) and EU-ISEMT 2016 (Rome). He also organized a symposium on “Electrochemistry, Photo-Electrochemistry and Bioelectrochemistry of Artificial Photosynthesis” at the annual meeting of International Society for Electrochemistry (ISE) in 2016, The Hague, Netherlands. He collaborates with researchers all over the globe and count over 109 co-authors spread across 30 institutions/universities. Currently, he is supervising one PhD student on microbial electro-synthesis and previously supervised 2 PhD student on microbial fuel cells. He was a promoter for two Marie Curie Post-docs on Microbial and Enzymatic Electro-synthesis on conversion of CO2 to value-added chemicals. He also contributes to scientific reviewing activities and reviews proposals for European Commission (Horizon 2020) and national funding programs of Spain, Italy, Poland, Croatia, Germany and India. He is also a member of the EPSRC expert college.
