Dr. Klaas Jan Schouten
Dr. Klaas Jan Schouten obtained his MSc Cum Laude in 2009 from Leiden University. He continued with Prof. Marc Koper for a PhD project on electrochemical CO2 reduction. His thesis has been awarded with the Dutch Catalysis Society Award 2015 and the European Federation of Catalysis Societies (EFCATS) Best PhD Thesis Award 2015. At the moment he is working at Avantium, where he started as a Project Leader of several projects on electrochemistry. As a Program Manager he is now responsible for the content-related management of all projects in Avantium’s electrochemistry research program, which is focused on developing new routes and processes using electrochemistry to produce high value products from CO2 and from feedstocks and products in a bio refinery.
