Bendiks Jan Boersma

Bendinks Boersma is Chair Energy Technology of the Process & Energy Department of the TU Delft. The research in the department Process & Energy focuses on process and energy technology within a mechanical engineering context. This means that a process or energy conversion is part of a machine or apparatus. Continuum ‘fluids’ (this can be a gas or liquid, or a combination of a gas and a liquid, with or without solid particulate material) are the common denominator, either (i) as a process material, carrier, or solvent, or (ii) as a medium through which a transport process, separation process, or conversion is carried out. In terms of scale the research covers the range from full equipment scale, down to molecular scales.

The research activities are carried out on a world-class international level, ranging from fundamental to conceptual and applied in nature. The fundamental research is mainly on (turbulent) transport phenomena and thermodynamics, while the applied research is aimed on innovative processes, process intensification, and novel concepts in energy conversion. The research also includes valorization of scientific knowledge and expertise, where new technology and inventions are demonstrated at scales of interest to industrial users and made commercially viable.
