The ITC research teams develop thermochemical process chains. In a holistic approach, process steps are investigated from laboratory scale up to industrial scale. Following the key objective of sustainable transformation of the energy system, work is focused in raw material change as well as low quality feed material such as waste streams.

Research comprises development and application of specific measuring techniques to enable process understanding and simulation by means of theoretical modelling.

Furthermore, we run the gasification and high-pressure / high-temperature gas cleaning of the bioliq®-process, generating on-spec syngas for chemical production from biomass.

Two examples for current innovations driven by ITC research are the Celitement®-process to manufacture new types of cement reducing process inherent CO2 by-production drastically, and the Carola-Clean-Air® particle filtration technology for application at decentralized wood combustion.

The associated chair for High-temperature Process Engineering teaches at the KIT department “Chemical engineering”.
