Biomass and Sustainable Production of Platform Chemicals

Biomass and Sustainable Production of Platform Chemicals

One of the current main challenges of our society is the future supply of energy and basic chemicals based on renewable feedstock. A sustainable and flexible availability of energy feedstock forms the basis for a future highly developed industrial society.
The significance of alternative energy sources continues to grow due to the foreseeable scarcity of fossil fuels as well as the growing awareness in policy, industry and society to place our future industrial development on a sustainable (biobased) footing .
For this purpose, our research at the Institute of Chemical Reaction Engineering (CRT) is focused on the substitution of fossil raw materials with feedstock from renewables and carried out in close cooperation with our industrial and academic partners.

The following sections provide an overview of our current research areas in this dynamic field of research:

1. Ongoing projects
