New technological approaches or applications of existing technologies are identified, assessed and fundamentally developed with view toward application orientation. To achieve this, we employ opportunity management and technology screening. The current technical focal points are in the field of the utilization of gas hydrates and new process-engineering processes.

International Projects

In a lot of cases, excellent results and sustainable success of scientific research and development require international networking. We adapt current technology approaches to the framework conditions of the partner countries and implement them in R&D and demonstration projects.

Group Environmental and Process Technology (RUB*)

In cooperation with the Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, we develop the foundations for biomass conversion processes and commit ourselves to answering fundamental questions on utilization of gas hydrates.
