Process Technology

Cycle processes and sustainable development

The Laboratory of Process Engineering has concentrated its research activities on the separation of compounds, downstream processing, synthesis of carbohydrates and on process development. It is particularly specialized in the establishment of membrane-based and chromatographic separation processes. These fundamentals may serve as important prerequisites for innovative biorefinery concepts of side streams of the food industry. Innovative pilot-scale equipment supported by precise analytical monitoring guarantees the basis for a proper scale-up of the outcomes of this applied research. Examples range from the isolation of valuable compounds from milk to the fractionation of agricultural by-products into various streams (amino acids, secondary plant products, etc.).
