Dr. Sourav K. Sengupta 
DuPont Water & Protection Business
Dr. Sourav Sengupta has had a long and remarkable career in DuPont for almost 30 years. In 2020, Sourav was honored as a DuPont Laureate and advanced to the highest technical level in the company. He is recognized as an innovator, a problem-solver, and a leader in many areas of catalysis and chemical engineering. Sourav’s work in heterogeneous catalysis, particularly in hydrogenation, hydrodeoxygenation, and hydrogen cyanide synthesis, has had far-reaching influence, evident from the sheer volume of his publications and the invited lectures he has given in his long and notable career in DuPont. Some of the articles he has published have received hundreds of citations and have been the basis of new research.
Sourav earned his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering at Jadavpur University (Calcutta) and his Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Delaware. He joined DuPont (Conoco) in 1991 and has made lasting contributions across many businesses since that time. He is currently supporting the global Water & Protection Integrated Operations Manufacturing Technology organization.
In addition to his work at DuPont, he is a recognized world class expert in the catalysis community. Sourav is the recipient of the 2015 Catalysis Club of Philadelphia Award, a prestigious award in the field of catalysis in North America. He has more than 90 US patents, provisional patents, publications in peer-reviewed journals, presentations in national and international conferences, and invited talks.
