Organisation profile

Organisation profile

Our main purpose is to perform research and provide education that will contribute to advancing technologies for future more sustainable (Bio)chemical production processes. Furthermore, our activities include digitalization of production processes. We also address societal challenges, mainly contributing to a few Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), most importantly sustainable production and consumption (SDG12), climate action (SDG13) and affordable and clean energy (SDG7).

Our research

Our research work, often in collaboration with industrial and academic partners (national and international), involves three main components:

  • Process systems engineering (PSE)
  • Bio-based transformations (biocatalysis, fermentation)
  • Separation Processes (Downstream Processing)


Collaboration is key to our existence, and therefore PROSYS has many international academic partners, and is involved in a broad range of industry collaborations. At the Department, we have frequent collaborations with PILOT and KT Consortium.

UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Our work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 2 - Zero Hunger
  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
  • SDG 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation
  • SDG 7 - Affordable and Clean Energy
  • SDG 8 - Decent Work and Economic Growth
  • SDG 9 - Industry, Innovation, and Infrastructure
  • SDG 11 - Sustainable Cities and Communities
  • SDG 12 - Responsible Consumption and Production
  • SDG 13 - Climate Action
  • SDG 14 - Life Below Water
  • SDG 15 - Life on Land
