    Group picture

The Department of Chemical Process Engineering (CVT) is dedicated to the research and teaching of heat and mass transfer phenomena in technical reactions, electrochemistry and the recovery of valuable materials. In doing so, we gain fundamental knowledge by means of simulation and experimentation and are interested in developing sustainable technologies in collaboration with industrial partners.
In reaction engineering, the focus is on the development of novel processes for chemical energy conversion and storage. Further, we use electrochemical methods to analyze materials and for sustainable processes. As a contribution to the circular economy, we develop methods for recovering ultra-fine valuable particles from dusts and sludges and techniques for upcycling residual materials. The department is led by Prof. Dr-Ing. Jorg Thöming.

The group "Chemical Production Engineering" (FG 22) is a member of the Faculty of "Production Engineering - Mechanical and Process Engineering" (FB 4) of the University of Bremen. The group is also part of the Center for Environmental Research and Sustainable Technology (UFT). The UFT is a Central Research Unit of the university and thus fosters networking activities on campus. At the UFT, biologists, chemists, ecologists, and engineers perform research on two core themes: resource protection and minimization of risks for men and environment.

Alexander Zimmermann and his master thesis supervisor Jorg Thöming are happy about the VDI award

Alexander Zimmermann is awarded with the Bremen Engineering Prize

Alexander produced such an impressive master’s thesis on Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) during his time as a masters student in our group that he has now been awarded the Bremen Engineering Prize 2022 by the Bremen chapter of the Association of German Engineers (VDI).

CVT group met in Holzminden for a seminar trip

From 26.09 to 29.09 the cvt group came together in Holzminden for a group seminar. In addition to exciting work sessions, there was enough time for table tennis, hiking and get togethers in the evenings.

Ingmar wins award at the EUROCORR 2022 in Berlin

At this years EUROCORR in Berlin Ingmar was awarded with the EFC Poster Price for the best poster presentation and discussion.

Micro channel with electrodes

Two novel setups published within SPP 2045 for particle separation with dielectrophoresis.

In numerous of studies, dielectrophoresis (DEP) has proven that its high selectivity and versatility make it a promising separation technique in a variety of fields.
