Semester: Winterterm

With a practical and at the same time tasty example, the distillation is to demonstrate as a classical thermal separation process. In work groups all steps are to be compiled, planned and realized for the production of spirits from fruits. The focus of the working groups is not only on process engineering details, but also on economical aspects, the legal basis (permission by the customs authority, taxation of the spirits), possibilities of the project planning and above all the teamwork. Differently from ordinary lectures, the required knowledge is to be compiled by the students themselves. Apart from the gained experience the students obtain a little bottle of burned liquor as reward and a certificate.
