Flavio Siller Rodríguez
With over 5 years of experience in research, Flavio is interested in designing processes that use sustainable raw materials (e.g. agricultural waste, industrial waste) to produce high added value products. His approach started with his BA thesis, Techno-economic Analysis of the Production of Ethanol from Sugarcane Bagasse in Mexico, and continued during his stay in TOTAL S.A. (Paris, France) where he had the opportunity to analyze the market and existing production technologies of 2G biofuel (made from agricultural residues). He laid the bases to include this company in the biofuel sector in the medium term, thereby destroying its growing dependence on fossil resources.
Previously, during a stay at KAUST University in Saudi Arabia, Flavio focused his research on how to use industrial effluents to grow organisms that allow the production of substitutes for the petrochemical industry.
Flavio holds a BA in Biotechnology from the ITESM (Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education) and a master’s degree in Chemical and Biological Engineering from KAUST University in Saudi Arabia.
