Dipl.-Ing. Robert Obenaus-Emler
Robert leads our activities in the area of research, development and innovation management with a focus on direct research cooperation with industry.
The coordination of individual chairs within the university is essential when dealing with questions from industrial partners to combine the expert knowledge of all relevant disciplines of the MUL in the highest quality.
Currently, the focus is on supporting the quickest and most environmentally compatible implementation towards a commercial scale of the sustainable production of hydrogen and carbon, the efficient use of waste and residual materials with a low ecological footprint, the evaluation and development of technologies in the field of CO2 capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS), the further development of sustainable building materials, and the increased integration of life cycle analyses already in the phase of developing new technical processes on a laboratory scale.
Robert studied rock metallurgy in Leoben, with stays abroad at the Colorado School of Mines (USA) as well as the Ecole Polytechnique de Montréal and McGill University (Canada) and was already active in industry-related research projects during his studies.
