Short CV

Lukas Maxeiner studied chemical engineering at at the Department of Biochemical and Chemical Engineering of Technische Universität Dortmund.

During his studies he did internships at Wacker Chemie AG and BASF SE, and spent a semester abroad in the US at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh(PA).

Thereafter, he wrote his thesis with the topic "Optimizing control of a tubular polymerization reactor using Proper Orthogonal Decomposition" at the Chair of Process Dynamics and Operations.

In January 2015, he joined the Chair as a PhD student.

Improved energy and resource efficiency by better coordination of production in the process industries

The goal of the CoPro project is to develop and to demonstrate methods and tools for process monitoring and optimal dynamic planning, scheduling and control of plants, industrial sites and clusters under dynamic market conditions to achieve an optimally energy and resource efficient production.

 My contribution: Development of suitable algorithms, Grey-box modelling


My field of interest is the development and application of distributed control and optimization for chemical production processes.
Hereby the focus is on the coordination of the distributed subsystems. In my case, coordination is done using a market like mechanism, which is based on the concept of supply and demand.

My goal is to develop a quick converging algorithm and to successfully apply it to case studies that are provided by industrial partners. This research is part of the European DYMASOS (Dynamic Management of Physically Coupled Systems of Systems) project.
