Biogenic residues for decentralized power generation, the development and operation of decentralized plants for electricity and heat generation and conversion processes for the production of basic chemicals are the topics of our department. Studies on energy efficiency and plant operation complement the portfolio.
For practical developments we have on 400 m² different conversion systems including an advanced online gas analysis available. Mobile measuring units can be used directly at customers sites.
Storable fuels can be generated by means of thermo-chemical and chemical conversion processes by using renewable energy. The focus is on the thermo-catalytic conversion of biomass for the production of oil, gas, coal and conversion processes for the production of basic chemicals.
Energy Efficiency and System Research
Due to the energy transformation towards Renewables new requirements of the energy system occur. The demand of energy storage requirements and energy system transitions are a focus of the work. Also the flexibility of power plants and energy efficiency in production processes are subject of our work.
