Dr Tara Hosseini is a Senior Research Fellow working at School of Chemical Engineering and Advanced Materials
Dr Tara Hosseini is a Senior Research fellow in the School of Chemical Engineering & Advanced Materials. She presently works on process simulation and techno-economic analysis of various hydrogen production technologies with the Future Fuels CRC. She specialises in the development of sustainable and clean bio-energy technologies through gasification, co-gasification of coal/biomass and pyrolysis, waste recycling and utilisation, CO2 sequestration and storage (CCS) methods and mineral processing technologies through both hydro and pyrometallurgical techniques. With the experience of work as a process engineer in the oil, gas and mineral industries in both Australia and overseas, she has expertise in the design and development of different chemical and mineral processes, process simulation and modelling using Aspen Plus and HYSYS, techno-economic analysis and reactor design and kinetic modelling
Prior to joining The University of Adelaide, She worked as a research fellow on a couple of industry-linked projects at Monash University. She developed a patented process to produce high-purity magnesium oxide/metal from Victorian brown coal fly ash. The demonstration plant is going to be built in a near future in Latrobe Valley with an initial capacity of 3000 tpa of magnesium metal. She also developed a process flowsheet for utilisation of waste tyre char in a value-added way to upgrade Victorian brown coal upon the co-pyrolysis with waste tyre char. This process offers high-value derivatives with low emission outcomes.
Dr Tara Hosseini has also worked as a process engineer for Mincore Engineering Company located in Melbourne. Mincore is a consulting, design, construction and advisory firm offering services to mineral processing and oil and gas industries. During her early career she also worked as a process engineer in a consulting engineering company active in the oil and gas industries in Iran.
