Multiphase Processes and Reactors

contact: Dr. Marion Börnhorst

Multiphase flows including chemical reactions are dominant processes in technical reactors and other applications, such as combustion and emission control. Our group investigates the interaction of heat and mass transfer between different phases with reaction kinetics and its effect on the overall system efficiency. This includes experimental investigations of reaction kinetics, heat and mass transfer and the development of kinetic models, which can be implemented to CFD models for simulation and optimization of the entire process. Our research focuses on multiphase systems and reactors for mobile and stationary emission control as well as for chemical energy storage.
