The Chair for Geochemistry and Economic Geology deals with the cycle of elements in the Earth and its atmosphere. Inspired by this definition three research groups with the focus on different aspects were formed

Our well equipped laboratory forms the basis of our work.

We develop by our research innovative technological solutions for the societal challenges like change to low-carbon energy and mobility systems, global welfare and resilient adaption to as well as reduction of anthropogenic climate change. We focus on sustainable access to raw materials and protection of our environment.
