Energy & Construction
Energy and Process Systems Engineering Group
The Energy and Process Systems Engineering (EPSE) Group focuses on sustainable energy systems and chemical production processes.
The research of the Energy and Process Systems Engineering (EPSE) Group focuses on sustainability in energy and chemical process systems. We develop methods to advance sustainable energy and chemical process systems from the molecular to the system-wide scale.
In our work, we combine computer-aided molecular and process design to simultaneously optimize molecules and processes. For energy systems, we apply our modeling expertise to model and assess sector-coupling. For both process and energy systems, we perform Life Cycle Assessments to holistically evaluate environmental impacts based on a large number of impact categories. Amongst others, we apply our expertise to the utilization of sustainable carbon feedstocks, the optimization of future energy systems and transition pathways, carbon capture, utilization & storage, as well as the intersection of these fields.
