Personal profile


Andrew Hoadley is Associate Professor in the department of Chemical Engineering. He is passionate about designing processing plants for better environmental performance. He is particularly interested in assisting with the reduction in carbon footprint of chemical and energy systems.

He is also an active researcher in the fields of dewatering, steam drying, and waste water treatment and related to these areas, he is interested in the upgrading of waste materials, industrial ecology and sustainability.

He is the author or co-author of around 100 peer-reviewed publications.


Research interests

My research interests include process modelling and optimisation; particularly the use of multi-objective optimisation to examine the trade-offs between environmental performance and inherent safety and economic performance. This leads into a general interest in sustainability associated with chemical end energy related industries.
