FEI Weiyang（1939.07--）, the Han nationality, born in Shanghai. Full Professor in Tsinghua University, Member of Chinese Academy of Sciences.
He graduated from Department of Engineering Chemistry at Tsinghua University in 1963 and served as an academic staff here since then. His main research field is separation science and thecnology. He concentrated himself on bridging the gap between fundamental research and industrial application and gained several theoretical and practical achievements based on systematic studies of transport phenomena, modeling and scale-up of separation equipments. By using advanced measurement technology and CFD simulation, he probed the mathematic models and intensification approaches of complex separation processes, resulting in innovation of high efficiency packing and advances equipments for solvent extraction, absorption and etc. His creative research works solved many engineering problems and produced significant economic and social benefits. He is very active on the study of Greenhouse Gas CO2 capture recent years.
He received 3 National wards and 14 Provincial or Ministerial Awards of Science and Technical. He is the author of more than 200 publications and 10 patents. He has supervised more than 30 PhD students.
He is the Director of Chinese Society of Circular Economy, fellow of the Chemical Industry and Engineering Society of China, the fellow of Royal Society of Chemistry, UK. He is the editor-in-chief of the Chinese Journal of Chemical Engineering and the associate editor-in-chief of several Chinese chemical engineering journals.
