Research divison Thermal Process Engineering - Computational Fluid Dynamics at the Institute of Chemical Engineering, Vienna University of Technology

Thermal process engineering applications which are being investigated in this research division involve separation problems in chemical and biochemical engineering, and in environmental engineering. Special focus is given to membrane separation processes and their applications in water and waste water treatment, to gas separations and flue gas cleaning (upgrading of natural gas, biogas and gas from biomass gasifications with an emphasis on CO2 and H2S separation; waste gas cleaning using biofilters) and product separation from fermentations.
