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. The laboratory is led by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jakob Burger and aims at providing excellent eduction in the fields of thermodynamics, reaction engineering, and thermal separation engineering for Masters, Bachelors, and during the PhD phase (shortcut to our teaching page including thesis offers).

Our research is driven by the theme  “Process Design for Mastering the Raw Material Change”. We are developing innovations and are excellent partners in the area of computer-aided conceptual process design, process modelling and optimization, as well as process scale-up and operation. See our research page for detail on our specific interests.

Please do not hesitate to contact us. We hope to meet you soon!

Podcast of the TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning with Prof. Burger

The new podcast series “Sustainability. Time to Change” presented by TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning, dives into the work of our TUM community and shares their vision of how their work can help to improve the world we live in. In the first mini-series which will air over the next couple of weeks, the podcast hosts John Pye and Thomas Münch of TUM Institute for LifeLong Learning talk with their guests about the topic: “Sustainability. Time to Change.”

The fuels of the future are here

Synthetic fuels such as OME can significantly reduce CO2 emissions while making combustion cleaner. At the Straubing Campus for Biotechnology and Sustainability of the Technical University of Munich (TUM), engineers are demonstrating the production of OME as an alternative to diesel fuel in a newly constructed demonstration plant.
