Sustainable Process & Energy Systems

With our expertise Sustainable Process & Energy Systems we know how to:

  • translate industrial market and application data needs from the process- and oil & gas industry into new instrument concepts;
  • efficiently develop this from idea to tangible high performance prototypes;
  • transfer the prototype to instrument manufacturers with which they extend their product portfolio.

With these products the end-users can optimize their processes & facilities and comply to regulations. Research group Sustainable Process & Energy Systems is also the home for a small group of specialists on High Power Electronics and (opto)mechanical/electronics system integration.
