Laboratory of Chemical Process Engineering
The Laboratory of Chemical Process Engineering was founded at the Straubing Campus for Biotechnology and Sustainability in October 2017 and is headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jakob Burger. In teaching, the fields of thermodynamics, reaction engineering, and fluid separations are covered. In research, novel chemical and biotechnological processes are developed using methods from modeling and simulation up to pilot plant experiments. The application focus is on processes that help to mitigate the consequences of climate change.
