Prof. Dr. Thomas Turek
Institute of Chemical and Electrochemical Process Engineering, TU Clausthal
"Chlorine is necessary for at least 50% of all commercial chemical products. Novel electrolysis processes with lower electrical energy demand enhance the sustainability of chlorine production."
Thomas Turek obtained his doctoral degree at Karlsruhe University in 1992. After a postdoctoral stay at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, he went back to Karlsruhe and completed his habilitation. From 2000 to 2004, he worked with Bayer Technology Technology Services, before he was appointed full professor at TU Clausthal. His research deals with reactors for chemical and electrochemical processes with the main emphasis on energy transformation and storage.
