For applied and industrial research in the sectors:

  • Chemical Industry / Petrochemistry
  • Wastewater management
  • Biotechnology
  • Energy management
  • Food technology
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Environmental technology

We offer the following services:

Application and customization of our measurement techniques to your requirements

  • Particle size distribution via endoscope technique,
  • Rheology via rotational, capillary viscosimeter
  • Power characteristics via torque measurement etc.


Feasibility studies

  • e.g. membrane screenings for your separation problem (e.g. wastewater treatment)
  • Development and testing of pilot membrane bioreactors


Lab scale and pilot scale tests

  • Fabrication of instruments and devices in the desired scale
  • Analyses of your relevant process parameters in our chemistry laboratory (ion chromatography, gas chromatography, HPLC etc.)


Simulation and optimization of fluid dynamics in chemical and process units

  • Analysis of  weak spots with regard to fluid dynamics as well as heat and mass transfer in technical devices, e.g. stirred tanks and bubble columns
  • Optimisation of design and operation with regard to fluid dynamics by using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics)


Cooperations in the following research areas

  • Drop size distributions in stirred liquid/liquid systems (extraction, bead polymerisation, emulsification)
  • Transient mass transfer phenomena at moving single droplets (extraction, emulsification)
  • Fluid dynamics in stirred tanks (evaluation of mixing processes)
  • Standardization of mixing devices and experimental conditions
  • Interaction between particles and turbulence (crystallisation, precipitation)
  • Treatment of industrial wastewater
  • Wastewater treatment in membrane bioreactors
  • Biological phosphorus elimination in membrane bioreactors
  • Membrane fouling
  • Kinetics identification of biological processes


Holding of seminars

  • VDI Wissenforum "Membranprozesse in der Prozessindustrie" (membrane processes in chemical industry)
  • Haus der Technik „Membranverfahren in der industriellen und kommunalen Abwasserreinigung" (membrane processes in the treatment of industrial and domestic wastewater)
