Process Engineering Advanced Research Lab (PEARL) reﬂects professor Jamal Chaouki’s research group at Chemical Engineering Department of Polytechnique Montreal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
PEARL is one of the strongest and most advanced process engineering research labs in North America. Fluidization, multi-phase reactors (ﬂuidized bed and
bubble column reactors), hydrodynamics, chemical reaction engineering (kinetics and catalysis), and innovative measurement techniques form PEARL’s research mainstream where cutting-edge projects for a wide range of industrial topics related to oil, gas, petrochemical, renewable energy resources, power plants, minerals, and batteries are carried out.
PEARL’s team includes about 50 Research Associates, postdocs, Ph.D. students, Master students and technicians. In addition, about 100 PEARL’s alumni who were graduated since more than 25 years ago, and they are now either university professors or senior engineers in major companies provide a valuable treasure for the current members.
