Research groups and projects

Information about our research groups and current projects

The research at the institute is divided into different research groups:

  • The research group Reaction Engineering deals mainly with heterogeneous gas-solid reactions in fixed bed reactors, as well as gas-liquid and polymerization reactions.

  • The focus of the research group Morphology Evolution & Transport in Porous Media is on the prediction of the formation of porous structures in different materials during the manufacturing process and the prediction of transport properties.

  • Based on the concept and design of process engineering processes, the research group Apparatus & Plant Design selects and designs suitable apparatuses and plant components and plans plants, taking into account aspects of production, construction and operation.

  • The research group Polymer & Membrane Technology develops ionomer membranes especially for use in fuel cells, electrolysis and other (electro-)membrane processes.

  • The research group Particle-based Functional Materials aims to develop functionally optimized materials for various applications in the fields of environmental protection (exhaust gas catalysis) and energy conversion (e.g. hydrogen production, fuel cells).
