Chair of Process Technology and Industrial Environmental Protection (500)
Organisational unit: Chair
The chair of Process Technology and Environmental Protection works on the integration of renewable energy in industry processes, the utilization of CO2 as feedstock as well as the development of technologies for closing the material cycles. Furthermore, research is conducted in the field of fluid separations where mass-transfer and absorption processes are modelled and optimized. Another research focus is on the improvement of metallurgical processes such as iron ore sintering and melt atomization for the metal powder production. To conclude the research areas, the chair also focuses on the usage of biogenic materials and their components as renewable resources in industrial processes. Following this concept, procedures for sustainable processing and utilization of biogenic raw materials, residues and waste water are being developed.
