Technology Centre

Aims and objectives:

In the biological / process engineering Technical Centre of the Faculty of Medical & Life Sciences, both individual process engineering procedural steps and complete processes are carried out on a pilot plant scale.

Equipment:

  • Plant for biological process engineering: bioreactors, various stirred tank reactors, multiple chamber fermenter, biogas reactors, incubators
  • Plant for mechanical process engineering: membrane filtration, disk separator, homogenisor, agitator bead mill, mills,…
  • Plant for thermal process engineering: rectification, adsorption, cristallization, extraction,…
  • Plant for special areas of application: series of stirred tanks, torrefaction, photooxidation,…
  • Process Analytics Lab (HPLC, laser diffraction particle analyzer, …)

Practicals, student work:

Students can individually plan, carry out and evaluate various process steps or parts of processes directly on the plant, and use analytical methods during the process.

Research:

In the Technical Centre various research projects are carried out:

  • Thermal processing of lignocellulose for the production of bio-based chemicals, Prof. Dr.-Ing. R. Erpelding
