With lots of regret we have heard of the death of our former colleague and friend Dr. Juan Antonio Arzate who succumbed, besides of another illness, to the consequences of his Sars-COV-2 disease in late December.

Juan Antonio worked as a fellow at the Lab of Bioprocess Engineering from 2015 onwards on the modeling of anaerobic digestion processes, in particular with parameter reduction and a model-based description of dynamic process phases, and completed his work in 2018 with a successfully defended dissertation.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends. We will always keep him in good memory!



Upcoming Events


The 6th International BioProScale Symposium 2021 will take place online between 29th and 31st of March!

The call for papers and registration for the next BioProScale is open!

More information can be found here.

The symposium is targeted at experts from research & development and industrial practice in the industrial bioprocessing of pharmaceuticals, food, feed and renewables. All people, from industry and academia, involved in bioprocess development, scale up and scale down for the production of pharmaceuticals, bulk and fine chemicals, food and feed are highly welcome to join!

Webinar - PAT for the utilization and pre-treatment of biogenic raw and residual materials in anaerobic digestion processes, January 28th 2021, 2.00 pm ! (in German language)

More Information, also about the registration can be found here.

Anaerobic processes are playing an increasingly important role in the utilization of biogenic raw materials and residues on the way to a circular economy with decentralized energy or material biomass utilization. The Bio-PAT network is hosting a webinar on new developments in process analytical technologies in anaerobic digestion processes, for both gas and liquid phases. Among others, the potential of in situ particle size analysis for optimizing digestion processes, especially using ultrasound, will be presented.

We aim to advance bioprocess scale-up and scale-down, process analytical technologies (PAT), dynamic modelling and optimisation, automated bioprocess development, cell and systems biology applied to microbial bioprocesses and biocatalysis applications.

Our research at the Chair of Bioprocess Engineering led by Professor Dr. Peter Neubauer aims to the development and application of new methods for faster bioprocess development, including genetic, cultivation, and analytical tools with a special focus on the industrial scale. All these aspects are addressed in our education.

We are especially interested in understanding the impact of reactor inhomogeneities on the microbial metabolism and adaptation, both affecting process robustness. This knowledge is applied to design molecular biological and process engineering solutions and thus our research contributes to the understanding and improvement of microbial processes of both fundamental and industrial interests.

By combining state-of-the-art cultivation, sensor and data analysis, automation, and mechanistic modelling technologies with molecular biological and physiological techniques, we contribute to improve the efficiency of bioprocesses and thus to the societal advancement of Industrial Biotechnology.
