Herzlich Willkommen auf der Homepage des Lehrstuhls für Fluidverfahrenstechnik der Universität Paderborn.

On our homepage you will find an overview of our research topics, methods and projects as well as information on our courses.

Our research activities focus on the development of resource- and energy-efficient solutions for the transformation of industry, in particular the chemical and processing industries. Using theoretical and experimental methods, we develop, investigate and optimize equipment and processes.

In cooperation with national and international partners from academia and industry, we are involved in various research projects with technical solutions and integration concepts in the field of classical fluid process engineering as well as in the field of heat exchangers and heat storage. In addition, we are developing operating concepts that take into account future boundary conditions arising from the transformation paths towards a climate-neutral energy and economic system. The central cross-cutting topics of our research are flexibilization and electrification.

The Chair is a member of the central scientific institutions Competence Center for Sustainable Energy Technology and Direct Manufacturing Research Center at Paderborn University.

If you are interested in any of these topics, please do not hesitate to contact us!


The chair of Fluid Process Engineering welcomes a new member of the scientific staff.  Elham Hassan Nezhad studied Mechanical Engineering at Shahid Chamran University of Ahvaz and Alzahra University (Iran) and graduated with a master thesis entitled "Development of an integrated model for water-energy-hydrogen nexus in economic zones (Chabahar free zone)". At our chair, she will work on the development of a HT-PCM heat storage system with…
