Sustainable processes and Energy Technologies

Sustainable process and energy engineering is one of the most important engineering developments in the 21st century. But what precisely do we mean by it?

Industrial processes and energy systems are sustainable if they promote development that 'meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own demands'. But achieving sustainability in the industrial realm will not be easy and can only be accomplished by overcoming formidable technical challenges.

Industrial sustainability
Sustainable industrial production is only possible if processes can be developed that use energy and resources more efficiently and drastically reduce waste streams – or even reuse waste as new primary material resources. We need to get more while using less; that requires the re-invention of many industrial processes.

What you will learn
In this track, students acquire the theoretical knowledge, the numerical and experimental skills, and practical hands-on experience they will need to work on conventional processes and energy systems and to develop next‑generation energy and process technologies.
