Jim Lim

Professor
Chemical and Biological Engineering
Faculty of Applied Science

Lim’s research has been focused on the fundamentals of spouting and fluidization phenomena, and the application of these technologies to environmentally friendly processes and clean energy production. His current research interests include biomass gasification with CO2 capture in a circulating fluidized bed, hydrogen production in a fluidized bed membrane reactor from steam reforming of higher hydrocarbons, performance of limestone for CO2 capture from a high-temperature/pressure reactor over many calcinations/carbonation cycles, chemical looping combustion for CO2 separation, development of thin Pd-based composite membrane suitable for hydrogen separation at high temperature/pressure, and process modeling and simulation.
