Andrew is a Chemical Engineering graduate from the University of Pretoria, with a Master’s Degree in process engineering from the University of Stellenbosch. During his undergraduate years he discovered a strong interest in bioresource engineering, specifically in the use of bio-based chemicals as building blocks e.g. for polymers, as an alternative to oil, gas or coal-based chemistry. His Master’s thesis dealt with the subject of “Mechanistic and Kinetic Aspects of Furfural Degradation in Dilute Acidic Media”. There is very little research available on this topic. The novelty of Andrew’s research was a contribution to the understanding of the kinetics of degradation conditions that exist in the industrial manufacture of furfural, in order to make recommendations on how to minimise loss reactions. As a result of his research, Andrew dealt extensively with one of the main degradation products, the humins, exploring beneficial uses for them.
