For more than 100 years, the Engler-Bunte-Institute has been dealing with the tension between scientific research and technical application with sustainable energy and water use in the sense of safe and careful use of resources.

Fuel Technology Division

The Fuel Technology Division of the Engler-Bunte Institute with the Chair for Process Engineering of Chemical Energy Carriers and the Professorship for Chemical Conversion of Renewable Energies deals in teaching and research with the process-specific characterization of fossil and biogenic, solid, liquid and gaseous fuels as well as process engineering and chemistry the fuel conversion and processing.

Combustion Technology

The Engler-Bunte-Institut belongs to the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and Process Engineering. The Chair of Combustion Technology is held by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Trimis. In the field of combustion technology, objectives are pursued with various measurement methods and theoretical approaches. As part of the sub-institute for combustion technology, the research center for fire protection technology deals with research and development work in the field of preventive and defensive fire protection.

Water chemistry and technology

Water is one of the most important resources worldwide. However, the diverse uses of water for irrigation, industrial processes and as drinking water lead to a considerable impairment of the water quality. Too often, with its unique properties as a solvent, water becomes a mobile landfill or a means of (removal) transport. The water used in this way is fortunately subject to purification in the natural water cycle and can usually be reused. In recent decades, however, the natural water cycle has become increasingly overwhelmed, and the possibility of reuse has been limited by the water quality. From a technological point of view, reuse can be shortened directly after using the water without having to go through the natural water cycle. However, this only works if we understand the underlying transport processes and the associated biotic and abiotic metabolism. This is exactly what the employees of the sub-institute deal with in numerous projects that you can find on the following pages.

Corona NewsNews

Due to the current corona pandemic, all divisions of the Engler-Bunte-Institute are in home office mode. The entrance doors will remain closed until further notice. Anyone in the building is required to wear a face mask. Laboratory operations are maintained to a limited extent. Face masks and distance rules must be observed in the laboratories. If you would like to visit us, please make an appointment with your contact person or contact the secretariat of the institute management.
