Rikard Gebart worked as R&D engineer (heat & fluid flow) at ABB Corporate Research in Västerås between 1984-1989. This was followed by six years at the Swedish Institute of Composites (heat & mass transfer) in Piteå. After one year at CERN, Switzerland working with cooling of the ATLAS detector (where the Higg’s particle was discovered in 2012), he returned to LTU Fluid Dynamics for three years. After this Rikard spent 12 years as the CEO and scientific leader of the Energy Technology Centre (ETC), where most of the work was aimed at developing processes for advanced renewable fuels from biomass. Finally, he went back to the university (LTU) as a professor in Energy Engineering, where for the last nine years he has been leading the work on advanced motor fuel production from biomass. During the last year Rikard has also been the leader of a new competence centre for hydrogen technology called CH2ESS. Rikard has a MSc Engineering Physics, Royal Institute of Technology, Lic Eng Fluid Dynamics, Royal Institute of Technology and PhD Fluid Dynamics, Luleå University of Technology.
