Hamburg University of Technology -
Institute of Solids Process Engineering and Particle Technology

 Hamburg
We investigate physical and chemical particle rate and transport processes like classification, drying, heating and cooling of solids, combustion, incineration, gasification and pyrolysis of solid fuels, including hard and brown coals, dewatered and/or dried sewage sludge, biomasses and different kinds of wastes. Hereby the research work is mainly directed towards combustion behavior, emission formation and reduction and measures for emission reduction, co-combustion and gasification.

Experimental investigations with novel developed measurement methods are supported and compared by hierarchically structured theoretical approaches. The model development includes particle based methods (e.g. DEM, population balances), continuous models (e.g. FEM, CFD) as well as steady-state and dynamic flowsheet simulations of solids processes, whereas simulations consider individual particles, bulk solids and multiphase particle laden flows. In order to meet these challenges we have also collaborations with numerous research groups, industrial partners, and federal institutions.
