    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.

The working group enjoys Grünkohl together at a restaurant

Grünkohltour of the Chemical Process Engineering department

Finally, after 3 years the CVT group could enjoy a Grünkohltour together.

New studentproject about water electrolysis

Designing, building, programming and illuminating a key technology of the energy transition - this is what students learn in the current application project "Efficiency of a water electrolyzer".


Electrochemical cell for for the enzymatic reaction to reduce CO2 and regenerate NADH

Research project REDUCTO is featured in the newspaper ZEIT

Our project Reducto is about bio-electrochemical carbon dioxide removal. Renewable energy is used to power biological carbon dioxide reduction.


CVT group celebrates together

The CVT group celebrates the end of a successful year together in a restaurant. In addition to the current employees, some alumni were also present to look back on an exciting and successful year together over good food.

Kevin wins 3rd place at the 2022 AIChE CRE annual meeting poster session

At this years Annual Meeting of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), Kevin presented a poster at the Catalysis and Reaction Engineering (CRE) poster session and was awarded 3rd place in the poster price.


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).
