About

Professor He obtained his Bachelor and Master of Engineering degrees in Extractive Metallurgy from Central South University in China, and a PhD in Chemical Engineering from The University of Queensland in Australia. He subsequently worked at The University of Queensland and The University of Adelaide before joining James Cook University in 2004. Since then, he was appointed to various leadership roles including the Head of School of Engineering and Physical Sciences from 2009 to 2014. Professor He is a Fellow of The Institution of Chemical Engineers (FIChemE) and Fellow of The Institution of Engineers Australia (FIEAust) and a Chartered Engineer (CEng).

Interests
Research
  • Professor He has keen interests in both fundamental and applied research. The scope of his research is broad and highly interdisciplinary. It ranges from investigation into multiphase processes to production of designer particles, nanostructured materials and biocompatible and biodegradable materials. It involves traditional disciplinary areas of chemical, food, mechanical and materials engineering and extractive metallurgy. The underpinning theme for the majority of his research, however, is concerned with particles, including their formation, processing and characterisation. These “particles” can be solid particles, liquid droplets or gas bubbles.

Qcide? Oil Extraction and Processing Technology with the aim to improve the oil extraction process

Indicative Funding
$50,000 , in partnership with Bio-Gene Technology Ltd ($53,262 over 2 yrs)
Summary
Implement an on-site experimentation program to establish baseline parameters (temperature, pressure, flow rates, oil yield) for the existing static oil extraction system using instrumentation acquired and installed as part of a previous (Phase 1) project. Evaluate the effect of key extraction process variables on the quantity and quality of the oil, and evaluate product change with process variable(s). Correlate the measurement results with the oil content results to develop an understanding of steam flow, biomass-stream contact and the oil extraction dynamics, and their possible variations from batch to batch. Analysis and reporting of experimentation results.
Investigators
Yinghe He in collaboration with Tegan Gibbs and Kurt Wagner (College of Science & Engineering and Autotec Automation Australia)
Keywords
steam distillation; measurements and process monitoring; oil extraction; process analysis and optimisation

Bio-Gene Technology Ltd - Contract Research

Improving the extraction process for QCIDE ? oil

Indicative Funding
$33,387 over 2 years
Summary
This project involves data-logging to quantify process variables, and taking samples of hydrosol to determine the state of steam-biomass contact to determine oil yield and areas for process improvement.
Investigators
Yinghe He in collaboration with Kurt Wagner (College of Science & Engineering and Autotec Automation Australia)
Keywords
steam distillation; oil extraction; measurement and process monitoring

Huntsman Corporation Australia Pty Limited - Consultancy
