Process and Systems Engineering – research and personnel

Process and Systems Engineering – research and personnel

The Laboratory of Process and Systems Engineering is focusing on process development, process modelling, process optimization and process simulation. The models are developed both for static and dynamics systems. The dynamic models are especially used for process control applications. The model spans from detailed microscale models to models on macro or system scale.

Energy distribution, energy storage, novel energy systems based on sustainable energy sources and CCS are of particular interest. The research is of great relevance to a large number of industries, including the pulp and paper, metallurgical, food and pharmaceutical sector.
