Chemical Engineering

The Division of Chemical Engineering includes the following groups Chemical Engineering Design, Chemical Reaction Engineering, Forest Products and Chemical Engineering, and, Chemical Environmental Science. We have a wide range of experience and work both experimentally and with modeling. We have a long tradition of working with both fundamental scientific questions and applied problems together with industry. We collaborate with for example the forest, pharmaceuticals, food science, chemistry and automotive industries and their equipment manufacturers. We also participate in many international networks with both companies and universities. Examples of research areas within the division are:  

• General multisectoral chemical engineering
• Transport phenomena
• Mixing in two and three phase systems
• Multi phase flows including chemical reactions
• Particulate and porous systems, e.g. drying, granulation and coating
• Chemical engineering processes and new products within forest industry
• Environmental systems analysis and ecodesign for chemical products and processes
• Catalysis for emission control
• Bio refinery concepts, including catalysts for alternative fuel production
• Bioprocess engineering

The division also has a very important teaching role, delivering courses at the bachelor’s, master’s and PhD levels.
