Research on novel chemical technologies for sustainable products, industrial processes, clean transportation, and reliable energy supply

The current research projects of the Deutschmann group focus on the reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, N2O) and local pollutants (NOx, particulate matter etc.) from processes in chemical industry, traffic, transportation, and energy-intensive industries as well as on the reliable supply of energy and raw materials by the development of novel and optimization of existing chemical technologies.

We use advanced experimental and theoretical methods to study the kinetics of catalytic and electrochemical reactions and their interactions with mass and heat transport in chemical reactors, emission control devices, fuel and electrolysis cells. A special emphasis is given on the development of mathematical models and computer codes (DETCHEM and CaRMeN) for the numerical simulation of technical devices and processes.
