The section for Process & Materials Engineering has a tot has a total staff of about 60 employees. Research focus of the section is almost entirely on development of new sustainable solutions, materials and processes for the green transition. This includes research, development and demonstration of a range of technologies within like green bio-refining, hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL),catalysis, polymers and plastic engineering, recycling and electrochemical energy conversion technologies like batteries, electrolysis, and Power-to-X technologies. AU-BCE has strong competencies within all these technologies, associated process engineering and covers a large part of the TRL ladder. This includes basic research as well as activities within demonstration and pilot-scale testing of renewable energy technologies, in particular at the section’s sites in Foulum.
Co-operation with other institutes, companies and universities both in Denmark and internationally is an integrated part of our culture.
