Emr

Energy and Mineral Research Group - Clay and Interface Mineralogy

Director:

Univ.-Prof. Dr.rer.nat. Helge Stanjek

Short name:

EMR-CIM

Info:

The research group Clay and Interface Mineralogy (CIM) investigates processes at the aqueous interfaces of clay minerals. Apart from classical mineralogical analyses such as quantification of clay minerals with X-ray diffraction, surface and bulk properties of clay minerals are characterized by a variety of physicochemical methods. Within the EMR group, we work on the smallest scale relevant for reservoir processes.

Profile Area ECPE

The provision of sustainable energy and materials is clearly one of the major global challenges which were identified in the future strategy of RWTH Aachen University. The profile area Energy, Chemical & Process Engineering (ECPE) addresses the two most important pathways to achieve this goal: Improvements in energy and material efficiency and the transition to renewable sources.

More information on the profile area's key topics can be found here.

RWTH Aachen Profile Areas

RWTH Aachen University is convinced that in order to solve today's complex and multi-faceted problems, universities have to develop appropriate, integrated approaches. The Profile Areas are designed to address interdisciplinary topics and thus to enhance the University’s capability to engage in significant research activities and take on large-scale projects.
