During the seminar "Gas-Particle Systems" Prof. Naue, former rector of the TH Leuna-Merseburg, gave an exciting lecture on "Structural mechanics of fluid turbulence and foundation of dispersion processes", which inspired the participants to question familiar models of thought and to take their measurement results seriously.
16.04.2018 - Fine Dust - a close look
Punctually at the end of the fine dust alarm season, Prof. Dittler was allowed to take a close look at the topic "fine dust" at the Federal Association of German Economists (bdvb) and inform an interested audience about the situation around this often very emotionally occupied topic.
27.3.2018 - Visit to Freudenberg in Weinheim
A small delegation of the working group received insights into the production of cartridge and cassette filters today at Freudenberg in Weinheim. A guided tour of the laboratory and an exchange of information rounded off the very successful visit programme. As part of today's visit, it was agreed to offer students of the Gas Particle Separation Technology lecture an excursion to Freudenberg in the coming winter semester.
21.3.2018 - Visit of a Delegeation from the China University of Petroleum, Beijing
A delegation from the China University of Petroleum led by Prof. Ji. Zhongli visited the working group for a technical exchange on topics related to gas particle technology. The focus of the visit was a guided tour of the institute in which the guests were able to get to know current research projects of the working group.
