Process Systems Engineering

Group

The Process Systems Engineering group is focused on the development of processes and reactors for different catalytic, non-catalytic and electrochemical applications. The close connection of experimental studies with process modeling and automation allows for covering the whole development chain from process concept to technical realization in a pilot plant. The evaluation of the examined process is conducted with regards to technical as well as to economic aspects.
