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.

Power-to-Liquid pilot plant
Power-to-Liquid: Pilot Operation of First Compact Plant

Demand-driven production of liquid fuels from regenerative energy sources is a major element of the energy turnaround. Production of synthetic fuels from solar energy and carbon dioxide extracted from air is the objective of the SOLETAIR project started now by INERATEC, a spinoff of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, in cooperation with Finnish partners. Together, the partners plan to take into operation the first chemical pilot plant worldwide. It is so compact that it fits into a ship container and produces gasoline, diesel, and kerosene from regenerative hydrogen and carbon dioxide.
