In Chemical and Materials Engineering we work on applications such as carbon capture, energy storage, biofuels, and pharmaceutical manufacturing. We do so with experimental and computational methods that cover a wide spectrum of length and time scales: from the atomistic level in e.g. catalysis research, via transport processes at the meso-scale, and reactor engineering at the scale of process equipment, to (bio) process plant design.

Our expertise comprises:

  • catalysis
  • reaction engineering
  • kinetic modelling
  • biochemical process engineering
  • multiphase flow & transport processes
  • molecular & granular dynamics
  • ionic liquids
