Zarko’s challenge

By Chemical Engineering |

Every distillation engineer west of the River Neretva is familiar with the work of Professor Zarko Olujic. His distillation laboratory at the Technical University of Delft (The Netherlands; www.tudelft.nl) is one of the largest and best facilities in the history of distillation. His work is typically funded by a consortium of companies that, most recently, included Bayer, BASF, Evonik, DSM, Montz, Koch-Glitsch, Praxair, Shell, Lummus, Akzo-Nobel, BP, ECN and Sulzer Chemtech. Zarko presently spends the majority of his time in Croatia. He consults, and he is still academically active at TU-Delft. Zarko regularly chairs distillation and absorption sessions at AIChE meetings. He has, in fact, been named “European Liaison” to the Distillation and Absorption section of the Separations Div. Alongside Nick Urbanski of ExxonMobil, Zarko will be co-chairing six AIChE Salt Lake City sessions next month. I am wondering now whether Zarko was in a “bad mood” when he attended the March San Antonio AIChE meeting. He seemed to be his usual cheerful, energetic self when I had lunch with him, but maybe the jet lag eventually overpowered him. Zarko’s first San Antonio presentation was regarding the HIDiC energy conservation…
