This lecture on bioprocess engineering focuses on processes that are of key importance for environmental biotechnology. Beside a pure civil engineering part, emphasis is put on biological requirements of environmental methods and techniques. Results of practical experiments and full scale applications will be discussed.

The following topics will be covered:
- Contaminated Land Management
- Microbial Conversion and Storage of Renewable Energy
- Principles and Application of Anaerobic Digestion
- Biotechnological Valorisation of Organic Wastes and Residues

Inhaltliche Voraussetzungen (erwartete Kenntnisse)

Grundkenntnisse in Chemie, Biochemie, Mikrobiologie und Verfahrenstechnik


Students will gain fundamental knowledge in environmental biotechnology and associated processes. They will be able to describe and explain techniques like biogas and composting plants. In addition, calculations for dimensioning of soil remediation facilities and for quantifying remediation success will be accomplished.
Students will understand the concept of sustainability and be able to finding solutions for environmental issues.
