Laboratory for Circular Process Engineering

LCPE Logo.png

The Laboratory for Circular Process Engineering (LCPE), led by Prof. Steven De Meester, focuses on chemical engineering in the circular economy

LCPE focuses on developing cost-effective recycling and (re)use processes to valorize organic waste and plastic waste. We focus on bringing the fundamental science related to separation processes into practice by combining process and system models with pilot-scale equipment, supported by a range of analytical instruments.
