Startpage of the Chair of Energy Process Engineering

Welcome to the

Chair of Energy Process Engineering

The Chair of Energy Process Engineering works in the heart of Nuremberg “Auf AEG”, since 2011. The chair is part of the Department of Chemical and Bioengineering of the Friedrich Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg.

Main focus of our work in research and teaching is the efficient use of conventional and renewable energies using thermochemical an biological processes like

Research topics of the assistant professorship for distributed energy process engineering are:

  • Bioelectrocatalytic power generation (enzymatic and microbial fuel cells, bioelectrode engineering)
  • Waste-to-Energy (self-powered biosensors, circular bioeconomy, bioelectrochemical systems with anaerobic digestion, organic waste valorization)
  • Bioelectrosynthesis (biocatalyzed  production of value-added chemicals, electro-methanogenesis, CO2 biotransformations)

Do not hesitate to contact us.
