April 2015: Inauguration of new pilot reformer at Linde:
The new process enables energy-efficient, low-emission synthesis gas production with economical industrial-scale use of CO2 as feedstock. The development was supported by modeling work of Dr. Lea Kahle, Dr. Karla Herrera-Herrera, and Dr. Lubow Maier from the Deutschmann group at KIT. 15.10.2015
Olaf Deutschmann selected as new member of the editorial advisory board of International Journal of Chemical Kinetics.
December 2014: Our novel in-situ study on catalytic NO reduction using two dimensional analysis of the concentration profiles by LIF is accepted for publication in Angewandte Chemie International Edition (ANIE) (DOI: 10.1002/anie.201410324R1). This work was carried out at the CATHLEN laboratory by Alexander Zellner, Rainer Suntz and Olaf Deutschmann.
November 2014: The DFG (German Research Foundation) established a new SFB Transregio on ?Turbulent, chemical reacting multi-phase flows near walls. The SFB Transregio is a collaboration between the TU Darmstadt (Speaker of the SFB: Johannes Janicka) and KIT (Coordinator: Olaf Deutschmann) and will be funded by 10 Mio EUR over the next four years.
Dipl.-Chem. Julius Rischard receives PhD-Study fellowship of "Fonds der Chemischen Industrie". His research in our group focusses on selective oxidation in fluidized beds.
Dipl.-Chem. Dominik Schollenberger was awarded the "DVGW-Studienpreis Gas 2014" for his Diploma thesis "Nutzung von Wabenreaktoren zur Methanisierung bei PtG-Prozessen". His thesis was supervised by Dr. Bajohr and Prof. Kolb vom Engler-Bunte-Institut as well as Prof. Deutschmann.
