Assistant professorship Distributed Energy Process Engineering


The assistant professorship for Distributed Energy Process Engineering adresses:

  • Bioelectrocatalytic energy produciton (enzymatic and microbial fuel cells, engineering of electrode surfaces)
  • Waste-to-Energy (self-fueled biosensors, bioeconomy, bioelectrical systems with anaerob digestion, valorization of orcanic waste)
  • Bioelectricsynthesis (biocatalytical production of high-value chemicals, electro-methanogenesis, CO2-biotransformations)
