Process Engineering

The process engineering research area focuses on understanding biological and chemical processes and developing, optimising and upscaling the technologies based on these processes via open and closed bio- and chemical reactor systems. Biochemical profiling and microbial physiology are applied to design bioprocess technologies for production of feed and food, pollutant degradation, resource recovery of nutrients and carbon sequestration in the form of energy carriers and platform chemicals. This research area lies next to industrial biotechnology and environmental technology.
