From June 13th to June 15th, the Chairs of “Fluid Process Engineering”, “Particle Technology” and “Thermodynamics and Energy Technology” hosted an excursion to ACHEMA at Frankfurt for a group of students. ACHEMA can be considered as the world's leading exhibition for chemical engineering and the process industry. While students could explore the exhibition on their own, the chairs also offered several guided tours for the students where special subjects were explored at different exhibition stands.
Furthermore, our Chair participated in the accompanying conference. Alexander Salten presented his results on „A novel approach for the determination of transport phenomena in random packings“. Steve Flechsig gave a talk on „Experimental investigations and rate-based modeling of CO2 absorption with sandwich packings“ and Nicole Lutters showed her work on the “Investigation of a new structured packing with an inclination angle of 75° for CO₂ capture”.
