Heinrich Strathmann is Professor Emeritus of the University of Twente, The Netherlands. He obtained his basic education in Physical Chemistry at the University of Darmstadt in Germany where he received his Dr.-Ing. in 1965. He worked for several years in the membrane based industry in the United States and in Germany. He is also Associate Professor at the University of Stuttgart and Honorary Prrofessor at South China Central University.
Dr. Strathmann is on the editorial board of various scientific journals and is author of three books on membrane science and technology. In 2007 he was awarded by the European Membrane Society with the R.M. Barrer Price.

“The synopsis for the book states that it is aimed at 'advanced students as well as process and chemical engineers working in industry'. I would fully support this view and wholeheartedly recommend the book to such practitioners and similarly interested readers. It is a worthy addition to anyone's bookshelf.”  (Chemistry World, 2012)
