Dr. Ahmed Al Shoaibi

Dr. Ahmed Al Shoaibi is currently an Associate Professor of Chemical Engineering and the Interim Senior Vice President for Academic and Student Services at Khalifa University.

Dr. Al Shoaibi has a broad range of research interests with one common thread connecting these areas which is the innovative use of green, environmentally friendly technologies to increase energy efficiency. His research group has established a world class lab facility, the Center for Environmental and Energy Engineering (CEEE), to carry out experimental studies. The CEEE research activities primarily focus on Energy extraction from unconventional materials and porous material development for gas processing applications. The research facility serves both academic and industrial projects related to the field of environmental and energy engineering.

The impact of his scientific research can be summarized in the following points:

  1. Preparation of porous carbon having high surface area and suitable pore structures which were suitably modified for different applications. The different applications include removal of containments from waste water, natural gas, naphtha and biomass.
  2. Gasification of plastic waste to syn-gas in a fluidized bed gasifier. Blends of plastic and biomass were gasified to generate syn-gas which can be a potential tool for mitigation of plastic waste.
  3. Selective dissolution of mixed plastics with suitable solvent and optimized process conditions to segregate mixed plastic to virgin plastics.
  4. Electro splitting of H2S to H2 and sulfur using membrane electrochemical reactor.
