Department Aerosols and Particles

Head of Department: Dr. Hanns-Rudolf Paur

 

Working Groups:

 

Electrostatic Precipitators

 

 

 

To remove fine particles from combustion, pyrolysis and
gasification novel electrostatic precipitators are  developed in fundamental studies. The CAROLA®- Electrostatic Precipitators  clean offgas from industrial incinerators and from  residential wood combustion.

Air Liquid Exposure Systems


To deposit reproducible amounts of nanoparticles onto biological interfaces (lung cells, bacteria) we develop the “Karlsruhe
Exposure System
”. This system is applied for the assessment of
the toxicity of nanoparticles and pollutants from biomass combustion.

Nanoparticle Measurement  and Modeling

 

The formation of nanoparticles in high-temperature processes and microwave plasma is measured by a novel particle mass spectrometer. Model calculations are developed and validated by these experimental data.

Heavy Metals

 

 

To quantify and reduce the emission of toxic trace metals from thermal processes we develop measurement systems and gas cleaning processes. The MercOx®-process cleans the flue gas from hazardous waste incinerators.
