Angelo Basile, a Chemical Engineer, is a senior Researcher at the ITM-CNR where he is responsible for research related to both the ultra-pure hydrogen production and CO2 capture using Pd-based Membrane Reactors. He also holds a full professor of Chemical Engineering Processes. He has 140 scientific papers in peer to peer journals and 230 papers in international congresses; editor/author of more than 40 scientific books and 100 chapters on international books on membrane science and technology; 6 Italian patents, 2 European patents and 5 worldwide patents. He is referee of 116 international scientific journals and member of the Editorial Board for 22 of them. Professor Basile is also associate editor of the international journal Hydrogen Energy and of the Asia-Pacific journal Chemical Engineering, and is Editor-in-chief of the international journal Membrane Science & Technology and Editor-in-chief of Membrane Processes (Applications), a section of the international journal Membranes. Professor Basile also prepared 25 special issues on membrane science and technology for many international journals (IJHE, Chem Eng. J., Cat. Today, etc.). He participated to and was/is responsible for many national and international projects on membrane reactors and membrane science, and previously served as Director of the ITM-CNR. Giuseppe Spazzafumo is an Associate Professor at Department of Civil and Mechanical Engineering at University of Cassino, Italy. He obtained a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a PhD in Energy Systems at University of Pisa. His main research field is Hydrogen Energy Systems. He has founded the Italian Hydrogen Forum and is the current President of such an association. He is member of IAHE (International Association for Hydrogen Energy) Board of Directors since 1999 and coordinator of HYPOTHESIS (HYdrogen POwer THeoretical and Engineering Solution International Symposium) series.
