As invited by Prof. Zhen Fang, from September 24th to 26th, 2019, Prof. Richard Lee Smith, Jr. and Assistant Prof. Haixin Guo from the School of Environmental Sciences, Supercritical Fluids Center, Tohoku University (Japan), visited our College of Engineering.

In the morning of September 25th, the chair of Agricultural Mechanization Department & Traffic and Vehicle Engineering Department, Prof. Ruiyin He; Professor Zhen Fang; the deputy director of the International Office of College, Mr. Biao Guo; and Dr. LJ Xu, met with Prof. Smith and Dr. HX Guo in Room C302, Yuxian Building. Mr. B Guo welcomed the arrival of Prof. Smith and Dr. HX Guo. He briefly introduced the current situation and history of the college from the aspects of college scale, subject setting, scientific research, international exchange and cooperation. Prof. RY He said that Prof. Z Fang has a long-term cooperative relationship with Supercritical Fluid Center at Tohoku University. He hopes that this visit will further enhance friendship and deepen cooperation in research, promote the development of international student exchanges and other activities, particularly to jointly host the 2020 “6th International Symposium & Exhibition on Aqua Science and Water Resources” (ISASWR-2020) holding in our college (Nanjing, Pukou).

Prof. Smith thanked the College for the hospitality. He gave a detailed introduction about Supercritical Fluid Center, Tohoku University, and its research fields, including supercritical fluid technology, green chemical processes, and also showed the research results in the field of green chemical processes for energy, food, chemicals and materials. He said that he hopes to deepen the inter-school cooperation relationship with our college in research and promote the exchange of teachers and students. Finally, he presented the key topics for the upcoming “ISASWR-2020” and both sides had a brief discussion.

In the afternoon of September 25th, Prof. Smith and Dr. HX Guo gave two invited lectures to teachers and students on “Green Chemical Processes for Energy, Food, Chemicals and Materials” and “Catalytic Systems with Ionic Liquid Additives for the Production of Platform Chemicals and Biofuels”, respectively. The academic lectures bring new enlightenment to the audiences on the directions of renewable energy and resources research and development.

Professor Richard Lee. Smith, Jr, obtained his Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology, USA. He is Professor of Supercritical Fluid Center, School of Environmental Sciences at Tohoku University (Sendai, Japan), specializing in thermodynamics, physical properties, supercritical fluids, and green processes. He is also the Region Editor (Asia) of the Journal of Supercritical Fluids and the editorial board member of Springer Book Series – Biofuels and Biorefineries. He has published more than 260 papers, patents and book chapters with H index of 48.

Dr. Haixin Guo, Female, Assistant Professor of Supercritical Fluid Center, School of Environmental Sciences, Tohoku University, Japan. She is committed to work in green chemistry, biomass resources that are transformed into high value-added chemicals with supercritical fluid-ionic liquid technology, separation engineering and other green chemical processes. In 2012 she obtained master degree in environmental engineering from Nankai University and in 2018 received doctorate in environmental science from Tohoku University. In April 2018, she worked at the Supercritical Fluid Center of Tohoku University and in May was quickly promoted to Assistant Professor of Environmental Science at Tohoku University.
