This course will provide a toolkit to students to understand and analyze sustainable energy systems. In addition, the main sustainable energy technologies will be introduced and their governing principles explained.
The theoretical background and practical aspects of heterogeneous reactions including the basic knowledge of heterogeneous catalysis are introduced. The fundamentals are given to allow for the use of chemical reactors to study reaction kinetics and test various mechanistic assumptions.
Familiarization with practical aspects encountered in chemical reaction engineering.
A research project is carried out along twelve weeks where a close interaction is required between the different groups.
Lectures from leading members in Chemical Engineering on: Catalysis, nanotechnology, material synthesis, process engineering, separations, energy, green chemistry, biotechnology, biocatalysis, systems biology and polymer systems.
