Welcome to the CVT!

The Institute of Chemical Process Engineering at KIT investigates, teaches and develops new processes to chemically transform substances. In doing so, we focus primarily on chemical reaction engineering. We also develop and use models and CFD simulations so that we better understand how the reaction takes place. Based on this knowledge, we can design reactor internals and catalyst supports in a targeted manner and intensify material conversion processes.

CVT visits ACHEMA 2024

The Institute of Chemical Process Engineering visited Achema in Frankfurt a. M. on June 12, 2024 with 15 students from the Faculty of Chemical Engineering. Achema is the world's largest process industry trade fair for chemical engineering, process technology and biotechnology. The companies Sulzer, Ekato and B.E.S.T Fluidsysteme (Swagelok) gave exclusive insights into current technology and future applications. Many thanks for the guided tours and the diverse impressions.

Martin Kutscherauer graduates summa cum laude

With his outstanding doctoral thesis on "Particle-resolved CFD simulation of catalytic fixed bed reactors for maleic anhydride production", Martin Kutscherauer has completed his doctorate at Clausthal University of Technology. The CVT would like to congratulate him on this excellent achievement.
