Chemical Engineering and Electrochemistry


The competencies of the department cover all aspects of process and reactor development in the fields of chemical engineering and electrochemistry. Our mission is to build a bridge between the development of new ceramic materials and the application in industrial processes.


Core competencies


  • Development of process plants and energy systems
  • Systems and components for efficient generation and utilization of synthesis gas
  • Generation of hydrocarbons via Fischer-Tropsch synthesis
  • Electrochemical characterization of supercaps and batteries
  • Electrochemical process engineering (e.g. anodization, electroplating, electrochemical machining and sensor technology)
  • Investigations on corrosion and corrosion protection
  • Simulation of chemical and electrochemical processes
  • Modeling of ceramic components (thermal, mechanical, flow, multi-field problems)


Services offered


  • Experimental and theoretical works on the development of novel processes (with focus on catalytic and electrochemical processes)
  • Optimization of established processes and reactors
  • Simulation of components and processes (design and optimization)
  • Feasibility studies
  • Scientific investigations and services
