General

Yinhua Wan is a Professor of Biochemical Engineering, working at Institute of Process Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), Beijing, China. He obtained his Ph.D. in Environmental Chemical Engineering from South China University of Technology, Guangzhou, China in 1993 and D. Phil. in Biochemical Engineering from Oxford University, Oxford, UK in 2004. He is currently serving as Vice Director of National Engineering Research Centre for Biotechnology (Beijing) (2008- ) and Vice Director of State Key Laboratory of Biochemical Engineering (2013- ), Institute of Process Engineering, CAS. He is also serving as Vice Secretary General of Chinese Society of Biotechnology (2011- ) and Executive Board Member of Asian Federation of Biotechnology (2015- ). He sits at Editorial Boards of a number of peer-reviewed journals such as Journal of Water Process Engineering, Membrane Science and Technology, Chemical Engineering, Water Treatment Technology etc.

Professor Wan joined the Institute of Process Engineering, CAS in December 2004, after working as an Academic Visitor and postdoctoral fellow at Oxford University for more than 5 years. Professor Wan joined the Institute of Process Engineering, CAS in December 2004, after working as an Academic Visitor and postdoctoral fellow at Oxford University for more than 5 years. Currently, Prof Wan’s research covers a wide range of membrane technology development for cleaner production, biorefinery of lignocellulosic materials, bioseparation and wastewater treatment, with focus on  development of novel and high performance hydrophobic membranes, and fermentation-membrane separation coupling processes for production of bioproducts. He developed high performance inorganic-organic hybrid pervaporation membranes and invented a number of new membrane processes and membrane fouling control technologies, some of which have been successfully applied in industrial applications and produced significant economical and social benefits. So far, he has published more than 160 peer-reviewed papers, 4 co-authored monographs and filed 36 patents (26 granted, including 2 US patents). He received the first prize of Science and Technology Progress Award from China National Food Industry Association (2009), the first prize of Technology Invention Award from China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation (2013), the second prize of Science and Technology for Development Award from Chinese Academy of Sciences (2014).
