Laboratory of Chemical Process Engineering

Welcome to the website of the Laboratory of Chemical Process Engineering at the Technical University of Munich, Campus Straubing for Biotechnology and Sustainability. Chemical process engineering develops technologies to produce and transform materials and energy carriers such as chemicals, fuels, and pharmaceuticals. It is an engineering discipline at the interface of chemistry, biology, physics, computer science, and mathematics with the central goal of scaling up processes from the laboratory into industrial practice. On the one hand, (bio)chemical reactions, separation techniques, energy, and mass transfer are quantitatively described. On the other hand, chemical and biotechnological plants are designed and built.

Since chemical processes are present throughout the energy and materials sector, chemical process engineering plays a paramount role in mastering the energy transition to renewables and establishing a circular economy for a sustainable future.
