Department of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry

Sustainable Process Engineering

We develop new processes based on improved mass and heat transfer rates for a more efficient, environmentally friendly, circular, and distributed production of chemicals, using new sources of raw materials and energy. SPE will lead the way to the future of chemicals production with the safest and most sustainable ways of producing chemicals.

Developing intensified processes to open new windows

Industry 4.0 will be small scale, distributed and circular. Truly changing the paradigm of chemical industry requires a unique combination of expertise, ranging from reaction engineering to separations, from photo-catalysis to electrochemical engineering and automation. Experts should truly work together towards a common goal, bringing the circular economy in the process industry to a reality.
