Dairo Ballestas Castro, Program Coordinator

Dairo Ballestas Castro coordinates the “Preparing networks for the arrival of the new gases” program. Author of a thesis on microwave catalytic reactors, he is a doctor of Process Engineering.

Upon obtaining his doctorate, he turned to the world of energy, starting with the oil sector. There, he worked on the separation of the constituents of crude oil into refined oil and other fluids, gas and liquids, and also conducted studies on equipment calculations for refineries.

Over the course of his career, Dairo also conducted four-generation experiments for the production of water vapour, heat, cold water and electricity, as well as food CO2.

In 2013, as a detection research engineer, he joined the team he now leads as coordinator of the “Preparing Networks for the new gases” program. At the same time, he became interested in issues related to the quality and analysis of gases and, in 2017, took over the management of this work.

“New methanes”: new sectors for industrial rollout
To strengthen the place of gas in the energy mix and to help ensure that the gas industry makes the most of the ongoing energy transition, RICE claims cutting-edge expertise in the study of new gases and, in particular, in the preparation of the networks - transport and distribution - for their development. Dairo Ballestas Castro is the...

RICE’s new headquarters, state-of-the-art facilities to invent the gas of tomorrow
After several months of work, RICE teams moved to their new headquarters in Villeneuve-la-Garenne (close to Paris) in July 2019. Called Sibelius, this resolutely modern site combines offices and collaborative workspaces, laboratories and test benches. A wonderful tool to support the fast growth of this structure and perpetuate the fine history...
