Being “The Research University in the Helmholtz Association”, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is the objective to make significant contributions to the global challenges in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about 9,300 employees cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in natural sciences, engineering sciences, economics, and the humanities and social sciences. The Institute for Micro Process Engineering (KIT – IMVT) and the Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (KIT – ITAS) act as participant in the KEROGREEN project. Both Institutes are involved in the research on the transition from fossil to renewable energy, efficient energy conversion and chemical pathways in storage of renewable energy at KIT.
Role and contribution in KEROGREEN
KIT-IMVT develops the process components for Water Gas Shift (WGS) to produce synthesis gas from generated CO and Hydrocracking to upgrade and maximize the Fischer-Tropsch crude towards kerosene and is responsible for process simulation and the database. It also provides the site installation of the fully integrated KEROGREEN system. In addition, with support of the KIT research office (FOR), KIT-IMVT is leading dissemination and communication activities. KIT-ITAS is responsible for the sustainability analysis of the KEROGREEN system.
