The main focus of teaching at the Department of Energy Plant Technology is to provide a deep knowledge of state of the art processes and plants for the conversion of fossil fuels. Another important area is the thermal recycling (combustion and gasification) of waste. Combustion, heat transfer and fluid mechanics are the key processes for the understanding of innovative power plant and furnaces technology and are, therefore, an important part of our lectures.

Note: Please pay attention to current announcements on the board in the floor IC2-south.
