Das Team



This professorship has been established as a shared one in 2008, i.e. it was partially financed by an industry partner. In 2014, it was turned into a full professorship (W3) without the requirement of external funding.
The professorship is represented in two KIT departments; the Institute of Technology and Management in Construction of the Faculty of Civil Engineering, Earth and Environmental Sciences at Campus South, and the Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal at Campus North.


The special field "decommissioning of conventional buildings" was added to this professorship's research scope and educational focus due to its inherent vast research potential. The experience and technologies gained from the decommissioning of nuclear facilities can directly be applied to this additional field of research. This will further include recycling friendly decommissioning methods, mechanical demolition methods, and automatic separation of non-hazardous and hazardous waste.
