Professional career

Patrick Schühle studied Biotechnology at the Esslingen University of Applied Sciences from 2010 to 2014 and passed his bachelor’s degree in the field of bioreaction engineering with honors. During his master studies in Chemical and Biological Engineering at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg he focused on the optimization of heterogeneous catalysis. In 2017 Patrick Schühle joined the Chair of Chemical Reaction Engineering to develop novel catalytic systems and reactor concepts for the renewable synthesis of methanol. Since October 2020, Patrick Schühle is head of the research group “Catalytic Systems for Chemical Energy Storage” at the Chair for Chemical Reaction Engineering. The focus of his research group lies in the efficient process design for Power-to-X technologies on a laboratory and pilot scale, using innovative catalytic systems.
