Labo voor proces- en milieutechnologie

PETLab is a research group positioned within the Chemical Engineering Department of the KU Leuven. Over the past ten years, the group has established a broad expertise in resource recovery and the production of renewable chemicals and energy carriers from waste, side and biomass streams and specializes in the following domains:

  • waste- and wastewater treatment processes,
  • mixed-culture microbial processes,
  • chemicals from low-cost feedstocks

Within their facilities at the KU Leuven Campus de Nayer, PETLab combines a broad range of analytical equipment with extensive lab- and pilot-equipment. With numerous industrial collaborations, PETLab aims at combining fundamental knowledge with a hands-on philosophy to tackle real-life problems that industry is confronted with.
