The Institute of Chemical and Electrochemical Process Engineering (ICVT) is engaged in research and teaching on the development of porous catalysts and electrodes and their use in reaction apparatus for chemical and electrochemical processes. Examples of issues in chemical process engineering are synthesis gas reactions and structured catalysts and reactors. The focus in electrochemical process engineering is on the development of porous electrodes for electrolysis processes, batteries and wastewater treatment processes. The aim of this work is the design and efficient configuration of reaction apparatuses through experimental investigations as well as modelling and simulation. The research projects of the ICVT deal with the production and characterization of porous systems (catalysts, electrodes), the development of new geometries of catalytically active materials, the determination of kinetic data of chemical and electrochemical reactions and the design of reaction apparatuses taking into account the coupling of transport and reaction processes. In addition to the experimental investigation of materials and reactions, the development of mathematical models and suitable simulation strategies is playing an increasingly important role.
