Antonio Ibáñez de Alba (born Chiclana de la Frontera, 1956) is a Spanish engineer, researcher and scientist.

He is known mainly for his project of Artificial Palm Trees in Libya for the creation of microclimates in the desert. The Libyan government invested in this project nearly one billion dollars for the installation of 50,000 palm trees in the Great Man-Made River.[1], the biggest irrigation area in the world.[2][3][4][5][6]

For this research, quoted in textbooks, Antonio Ibáñez De Alba was awarded the Gold Medal of the World Intellectual Property Organization in 1990
