    2. Achievements and Career Development

    J. Ángel Menéndez Díaz, works on carbon materials, particularly in the characterization of the surface chemistry of carbons, developing a model on the nature of basic surface groups. It has also developed new custom-made 3D porous carbon structures produced by molding or additive manufacturing of whey. Another of his lines of research is microwave-induced pyrolysis (MIP), being a pioneer in the production of synthesis gas by microwave pyrolysis of organic waste and the dry reforming of methane assisted by microwaves.
