The Priority Program "Creation of synergies in customised mixtures of heterogeneous powders " applied for by Lutz Mädler and Udo Fritsching from the Process and Chemical Engineering Department at the Leibniz IWT and the University of Bremen was recently selected for funding by the German Research Foundation (DFG) as one of 14 projects.
Scientific foundations of particularly current or emerging research fields are to be investigated in the Priority Programs. All programs are extremely interdisciplinary and characterized by the application of innovative methods. Funding will initially be provided over three years, with a total duration of six years.
Process Engineering: Customized Mixtures of Heterogenous Powders
The new program “Creation of synergies in customised mixtures of heterogeneous powders” focusses on the development of application-oriented particle systems through controlled, process reliable, and maneuverable setting of particulate generation systems. The main focus is to be placed on gas phase processes because these allow for process controlling for new, pure material systems to a special extent.
The Priority Program will be include around 20 scientific sub-projects that will bring together the expertise of various transdisciplinary research fields – for example, production engineering, process technology, flow technology, measurement and characterization techniques, modelling and simulation, application technologies such as in energy conversion and energy storage, and material synthesis.
