Zsuzsu Mayer, Ph.D.
Pyrolysis, Biomass, Biochar & Biofuel Characterization, Analysis & Advanced Process Optimization
Zsuzsa has an M.Sc. and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry. She is a chartered chemical engineer and scientist specializing in intermediate and fast pyrolysis, and an analytical chemist specializing in biomass characterization (energy crops, microalgae, industrial and agriculture waste, etc.), bio-oil characterization (physical, chemical, and fuel properties) and char characterization (both for soil and for energy applications). Zsuzsa has designed and set up cutting-edge laboratories and published several peer-reviewed research papers and patents. She is a hands-on expert in a very wide range of analytical instruments necessary for the effective support of R&D activities and industrial-scale fuel production. Zsuzsa is an expert in several advanced statistical methods essential for pyrolysis process optimization, product upgrading, and quality control. She joined the European Bioenergy Research Institute in 2009 and currently works as a Principal Analytical Chemist and Biofuel Researcher in Oxford, UK. Contact Zsuzsa.
