Product and Process Engineering

Product and Process Engineering (PPE) views chemical engineering as an expanding field full of opportunities to create devices, processes and products. With expertise in key areas such as process systems engineering, process intensification, reaction engineering, fluid mechanics and transport phenomena, we create viable solutions for novel sustainable chemical processes, soft-matter, nanotechnology, energy and lab-on-chip applications. We do this often together with chemistry, physics and life-science groups; as we love interdisciplinary projects. For us, chemical engineering implies out-of-the-box thinking and design going from molecule to enterprise level, from a sound basis in natural sciences with mathematical rigor.

A partial list of topics that we work on:

  • process systems engineering methods & tools for informed decision making
  • process synthesis, design, control, and optimization of chemical processes
  • intensified reaction and separation processes
  • bubbles, drops and cells in laboratories-on-chip
  • human disease models: organs-on-a-chip
  • spatio temporal pattern formation in porous media
  • rational design and synthesis of core-shell nanoparticles
  • light intensity in photocatalytic reactors
  • behavior of particles in turbulent gas/liquid systems
  • granular matter in dense fluidized flows

     

PPE consists of Principal Investigators Ruud van Ommen, Gabrie Meesters, Pouyan BoukanyVolkert van Steijn, Alina Rwei, Paulien HerderAdrie Huesman and Tony Kiss.
