Abstract

The aim of this project is to learn from the architecture and function of nature so as to improve man-made processes. The members of the project team have skills in non-equilibrium thermodynamics, statistical physics, biology, chemical engineering and computational chemistry on the macroscopic scale as well as the molecular scale. The interdisciplinary team intends to study the available energy in natural systems, how it is used and what the efficiency of the conversion depends on. We are planning to study biological systems (lungs, kidneys, molecular motors) and chemical process equipments (reactors, heat exchangers, separation equipments).
