The Department of Environmental Process Engineering and Plant Design

The department is focussed on application-oriented research and development in the field of environmental process engineering and plant design.

According to these activities the department is divided into working groups as follows:

  • Environment-friendly energy and process engineering
  • Treatment of wastes and residues
  • Removal of pollutants
  • Environmental measurement techniques and
  • Environmental services



Several lectures, partially with practical ecercises are focussed on the following topics:

  • Cleaning and chemical analysis of gases
  • Waste water cleaning
  • Treatment of wastes and residues
  • Combustion engineering
  • Chemical process engineering
  • Plant design


Interconnecting Research and Teaching with Practice

For research and development projects carried out in joint ventures with industrial companies various semi-technical and pilot scale test facilities are available.

Some projects are carried out directly at industrial sites. Others are considered with computer simulations of industrial plants.
Within the scope of all these activities students- and diploma theses as well as dissertations are originated.
Results are immediately transferred to lecturing.
