Research at the Chair of Energy Process Engeneering

The rapidly advancing climate change and the increasing dependence of Europe on fossil fuels from the crisis regions of the world require the conversion of the energy industry to renewable energies and CO2-free power plant technologies.

Our research work combines experimental work on experimental plants with thermal power up to 100 kW with the modeling and simulation of real thermal processes. The focus is on the “proof-of-concept” for new ideas and innovative technologies – without losing sight of their social relevance and energy-economic aspects.

We focus on the combustion and gasification of biomass, second-generation fuels and fuel cells, as well as the energy-economical assessment of energy systems.
