Chemical process engineering

Chemical Process Engineering (CPE) research unit merges the disciplines of chemical process engineering and bioprocess engineering. Biomass engineering, and especially the existing technological gap in the sustainable utilization of lignocellulosics to biofuels and chemicals, is the inspiring source of the CPE research. The specific research areas of CPE are the chemical and biochemical conversion of biomass, novel products and processes in industrial water treatment and, recovery/separation process synthesis and evaluation. The combination of the research areas yield us the tools to bridge the technological gaps in the utilization of lignocellulosics to biobased products.
