Biography

Changgun Lee, the Post-doctoral Research Associate of Dept. Chemical Engineering at University College London, is working on EPSRC funded project entitled “Utilisation of Solar Energy and Electrocatalytic Processes for the Low Energy Conversion of CO2 to Fuels and Chemicals” in collaboration with the Department of Chemistry at Cardiff University and the Department of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science at the University of Manchester. Prior to this, he has done several process & supply chain systems modelling and optimisation projects, and also gained strong life cycle assessment (LCA) and carbon accounting experience in a broad range of projects including: chemical/electrical product manufacturing, energy generation and wastes management. First of all, he completed his PhD degree in Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London under the joint supervision of Professor Nilay Shah and Professor Lazaros Papageorgiou. During his research studies, he developed several multi-objective optimisation models, some of which were: Snap-shot, Multi-period (Pathway) and Stochastic. Using these models, He was able to determine the eco-efficient network structure of reverse supply chains and successfully applied them to several case studies such as fluorescent lamps and white goods. This further enhanced his knowledge of supply chain network modelling and programming skills. In 2014, he was appointed Research Associate at Imperial College London. he continued to work in a project with Sainsbury’s. The project was focused on the development of spatial cluster maps to calculate the energy use and carbon emissions in supermarkets and distribution centres. As a result, he identified the possible technology plans (energy & heat storage options) and the economic impact in order to reduce carbon emission and energy use. Moreover, he was also able to investigate their logistics and distribution management systems and provided them with eco-efficient solutions to optimise the systems in terms of energy use and carbon emission. Sainsbury’s were able to apply his recommendations into their policy. Since September 2015, he has also involved in a Climate-KIC: Smart, Sustainable District (SSD) programme. He has investigated the potential for e-mobility, low carbon modes and innovation technologies of urban transportation in the district (e.g. Moabit-Berlin and QEOP- London). In order to address the issues, he has developed an innovative solution approach, in a participatory process with local stakeholders, to test different scenarios in regards to their ecological impacts and implementation potential. Further work experience includes 10 years in three different research and consulting institutes. he worked as LCA and carbon accountant within Eco-Product Institute, WECOS Co. Ltd, Korean Environmental Industry and Technology Institute, and National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. He worked on governmental, academic and industrial projects related to LCA and sustainability: (1) national life cycle inventory database development of the process systems in energy, electrical and heavy industries, (2) LCA and carbon accounting of electrical and chemical products, and (3) energy and resource recovery system management. 

Research Summary

Changgun Lee has advanced process & supply chain systems modelling and optimisation skills with strong LCA and carbon accounting experience in a broad range of projects including chemical, electrical product manufacturing, energy generation and waste management. He has recently worked on EPSRC project entitled “Utilisation of Solar Energy and Electrocatalytic Processes for the Low Energy Conversion of CO2 to Fuels and Chemicals” Relevant research works include: 

  1. Comprehensive LCA model to determine the impact of hydrocarbon fuels production from novel forms of CO2 conversion that utilises electrical power generated by renewables and hydrogen produced by new photocatalytic technologies.
  2. A number of LCA modelling studies using the Think Step software to investigate energy efficiency, material utilization and recycling, and waste management for the different technologies investigated.
  3. Flowsheets, energy and exergy analyses to identify the process steps that determine the highest energy consumption and irreversibility.
  4. Life cycle cost analysis of a potential industrial scale process.
  5. Multi-objective optimisation model to determine the eco-efficient solution of CO2 conversion processes.
