BACKGROUND

Devrim Murat Yazan holds B.Sc. degree from Marmara University (Istanbul, Turkey) in Industrial Engineering and a Ph.D. degree in Advanced Production Systems from Interpolytechnic School of Doctorate (Polytechnics of Bari-Turin-Milan, Italy, 2010) in the field of Innovation Management and Product Development, by the thesis entitled: ‘Economic and environmental sustainability of production chains: An Enterprise Input-Output approach’. He was a visiting Ph.D. at the Operations Department of University of Groningen (the Netherlands) for one year in 2009 and conducted research on the implementation and coordination of joint production chains via waste and end-of-life product recycling. After completing his Ph.D., he joined University of Twente’s Biofuels Platform as a post-doctoral researcher at the Twente Centre for Technology and Sustainable Development in 2011. He has been coordinating the research and international networking of the Biofuels Platform since then and dealt with the sustainability of bioenergy supply chains, development of local biomass markets, and efficient regional use of bio-resources. In 2014-2015, upon winning a research grant from Sardinia Autonomous Government, he was involved in a regional research project on the sustainability analysis of a bio-refinery supply chain and its role for regional development, in Green Pole industrial zone in Sardinia (Italy).

He joined IEBIS upon winning a research grant in April 2015 within the TECH4PEOPLE project entitled: ‘Design of sustainable second-generation bioenergy supply chains’. Since September 2015 he is also leading the IEBIS in the EU project entitled: ‘SHAREBOX- Secure Management Platform for Shared Process Resources’. This 4-years project is also brought to the University of Twente by his initiative, efforts and international networking. Details about the project are available at: http://sharebox-project.eu/.

One of his research interests is the design and development of industrial symbiosis networks where waste of a firm substitutes the primary resource of another firm. Currently, he is leading IEBIS in the SHAREBOX project which is funded by the European Commission within the Horizon2020 Sustainable Processing Industry through Resource and Energy Efficiency (SPIRE) framework. He is the work-package (WP3) leader and the head of the technology development team of the SHAREBOX project. The project aims at developing a decision-support-system for secure management of resource-sharing in industrial symbiosis networks. IEBIS has the role of implementing intelligent decision-support tools using input-output modelling, game theory, and agent-based modelling in SHAREBOX project. The project involves 16 partners from UK, Germany, Switzerland, Spain, and Turkey, with a total budget of 5.9M € of which 725k € is for IEBIS.

RESEARCH INTERESTS

Sustainable supply chain management, implementation of bio-based economy and circular economy, innovative business models for sustainable regional development, corporate social responsibility, company behavior in emerging waste markets, design and operations of industrial symbiosis networks, sustainability monitoring, reuse-recycling-remanufacturing, mobile biomass processing, bio-refinery and bio-energy supply chains, input-output modelling, game theory, agent-based modelling, life cycle assessment.
