Welcome to IMVT
The Institute for Micro Process Engineering (IMVT) was founded in July 2001 with the objective of enhancing the use of novel microstructures in modern process engineering. Foundation of IMVT had been preceded by innovative studies relating to the fabrication of metal microstructured devices and their use in process engineering at the former Central Experimentation Department and before at the Institute for Nuclear Process Technology of Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe. IMVT and its precursor department had been headed by Dr. Klaus Schubert since the late eighties.
Today, IMVT is one of the leading academic research institutions in the field of micro process engineering worldwide. An international team of 64 employees specialized in various disciplines focuses on the construction and fabrication of microstructured devices, on fundamental studies of transport processes and chemical reactions in microstructures, and on the use of prototypes in selected thermal and chemical processes. Apart from research projects financed from basic funds under the Helmholtz programmes, projects funded by third parties are being executed in cooperation with industry and academic research institutions in Germany and abroad.
IMRET 2018 - International Conference on Micro Reaction Technology
IMRET 2018 sets out to become once more the “place to be” where new developments regarding all facets of micro process engineering and flow chemistry will be jointly discussed for mutual benefit.
Since 1997 the event has demonstrated a variety of new applications in chemical engineering, chemistry, related disciplines like energy supply, and even more different fields such as analytics, life science and medicine. Yet, as each of the involved disciplines has seen amazing progress, the mission of providing an effective platform for exchange is even more important.
15th IMRET will take place in the city of Karlsruhe/Germany from 21-24 October 2018, organised by DECHEMA e.V. with the support of the German ProcessNet Woking Group on Micro Process Engineering, the IMRET Steering Committee, and the International Flow Chemistry Society.
IMRET has been established to foster scientific exchange and cooperation between chemists, chemical engineers, and micro systems engineers – altogether fascinated by the new opportunities that microfluidics, micro fabrication, and micro systems engineering provide for making chemical reactors and processes more efficient, more compact, safer, and ultimately more economic, as well as to enable novel chemistry and process conditions which could be hardly handled in conventional equipment.
