Mailing address:Institut für Verfahrenstechnik
Research Focus of the Institute:The main goal of the research activity of the institute is the development of more efficient, safer, less environmentally harmful, more sustainable processes . Moreover, new techniques are investigated for the development of new products and new preparations to match the new requirements of our society. Some examples of the former group are chemical or biological processes for the down-stream treatment of waste air, waste water or sewage sludge, fluidized bed technology and clean separation processes based on chromatography. Examples from the latter product-oriented group are new processes for cell encapsulation, plasma enhanced coating, synthesis of fibers and ultra fine drug particle crystallization. Processes are investigated not only in terms of their sequence of transformation; in fact, on the one hand also the design of special equipment is developed and on the other hand the issue of system integration is addressed.
