Eric van Hullebusch Prof.

Professor of Environmental Science and Technology

Biography

Hab. Dr. Eric D. van Hullebusch received his PhD (Aquatic Chemistry and Microbiology) from Universite de Limoges (France) in 2002. His PhD research focused on the study of the fate, mobility and environmental impact of metals (copper and aluminium) used for the chemical treatment of eutrophic lakes. From November 2002 until October 2004 he was a Marie Curie Postdoctoral fellow at Wageningen University (the Netherlands) where his research focused on the optimization of anaerobic granular sludge reactors by studying the speciation, bioavailability and dosing strategies of trace metals. In November 2004 he became assistant professor at Universite de Limoges (France) and in September 2005, he was appointed as associate professor in biogeochemistry of engineered ecosystems at Universite Paris-Est (France).

In March 2012, Eric van Hullebusch obtained his Habilitation qualification in Environmental Sciences from Universite Paris-Est. The title of his Habilitation thesis is “Biofilms in the environment: from anaerobic wastewater treatment to material bioweathering”.

In September 2016, he joined IHE Delft as chair professor in Environmental Science and Technology.

Eric van Hullebusch has a significant experience in teaching at MSc level mainly in environmental chemistry, biogeochemistry, environmental geochemistry, environmental microbiology, biological wastewater treatment and biological organic waste treatment.

His research activity mainly focused on the three following topics :

Study of metals and metalloids biogeochemistry in engineered ecosystems (e.g. bioreactors) mainly dedicated to wastewater treatment for pollution control and resource recovery, Investigation of the role of living organisms on the weathering of materials and minerals (concrete materials, metal sulfides and wastes such as metallurgical wastes for resource recovery,....), Soil remediation (advanced oxidation processes, combination of soil washing and bioremediation).

Eric van Hullebusch has been involved in several international projects. From September 2010 until August 2014 he was coordinator of the IRSES FP7 EU project MINPOLLCONTROL (Mining wastes bio/weathering, pollution control and monitoring) involving IHE Delft and two Brazilian partners.

Also, he was lately mainly involved in the coordination of 2 joint PhD programmes. The Erasmus Mundus Joint Doctorate ETeCoS3 (The Environmental Technologies for Contaminated Solids, Soils and Sediments) and the Marie Sklodowska-Curie - ITN European Joint Doctorate ABWET (Advanced Biological Waste-to-Energy Technologies).

Eric van Hullebusch has published about 158 peer-reviewed papers since 2002 (h-index 26 and about 2250 citations – Source Scopus).
