Lukas Bittorf has studied Chemical Engineering at the TU Dortmund University since 2011. He completed his bachelor thesis with the topic ‘Residence Time Distribution of the continuous Phase in millistructured, stirred pulsed Extraction Columns’ at the Laboratory of Equipment Design. He completed his master at the Laboratory of Thermodynamics with his thesis ‘Modeling the Equilibrium of an Organocatalytic Reaction under High Pressure Conditions’. Since 2018 he works as a research associate at the Laboratory of Equipment Design, participating in the ENPRO-ORCA project. Within the scope of this project he develops a fully automated spinning band column as a module for distillation in modular plants.
