Ayman Hijazi earned his BSc degree in Chemical Engineering from the Middle East Technical University in Turkey in 2011. Afterwards, he was a Process Engineer for seven years at a biogas plant in Sidon-Lebanon, which receives municipal solid waste biomass feedstock and valorises it into biogas using anaerobic digestion technology. At the same time, he worked on a degree in the American University of Beirut, where he received his MSc in Chemical Engineering with a focus on developing waste to energy catalytic processes. The agenda of research was based on synthesizing heterogeneous catalysts capable of optimizing pyrolytic gas from the pyrolysis of scrap rubber tires. In 2019, Hijazi moved to Ireland to join a postgraduate program in Chemical Sciences to fulfil his passion of studying sustainable biomass for finding new energy vectors, such as biofuels and biosolvents, to replace fossil fuel-derived compounds and to eventually reach a greener future.
