Israel Ruiz Salmón graduated as a Chemical Engineer in 2013 and completed his Master Degree in Chemical Engineering with thesis on “Sustainable Consumption and Production” in 2014, at Universidad de Cantabria (Spain). From 1st October 2014, he started his PhD in Science and Technology under the supervision of Patricia Luis at Université catholique de Louvain (Belgium). The main objective of the thesis is to develop an integrated strategy combining several membrane-based technologies in order to capture CO2 from flue gases from combustion processes. Besides, this scenario also includes the use of membrane distillation/crystallization to obtain a product (i.e., salts) that can be reused in the industry as raw material (e.g., ceramic and cement industry). Laboratory work is combined with modeling and simulation from technical, economic and environmental point of view. His background also includes teaching collaboration at Université catholique de Louvain.
