Dipl.-Ing. Eva Zschieschang is pursuing her PhD at the Institute of Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany on the development of sustainable applications for energy conversion using microprocess engineering. She performed her diploma thesis in microsystem engineering developing a novel concept for the arrangement and production of PEM fuel cells at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems and the University of Freiburg, Germany.
Dr.-Ing. Peter Pfeifer studied chemical engineering at University Erlangen-Nürnberg and performed his PhD at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). He became group leader for Gas and Multiphase Catalysis at the Institute for Micro Process Engineering at KIT in 2001. Since 2008 he gives Master courses about Micro Process Engineering at KIT and has already published more than 40 peer reviewed papers.
Liselotte Schebek is Head of the Department of Technology-Induced Material Flow, Institute for Technology Assessment and Systems Analysis (ITAS-ZTS) at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). She holds the chair of Industrial Material Cycles at the Technical University of Darmstadt, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geodesy.
