Process Engineering

In the face of climate change, the structure of our industrialized society will change fundamentally. This brings new opportunities and challenges for membrane technology. An example is the separation and processing of hydrogen, an increasingly important energy carrier of the future. The “Process Engineering” department studies the separation behavior of innovative membrane materials and researches how they can be processed into flat sheet membranes with high fluxes and high selectivity. On this basis, we develop membrane modules and process designs that are ready for application. The experimental work is supplemented by comprehensive computer simulations reflecting real-world operating behavior.
