Stefan PFLÜGL holds a University assistant position in bioprocess engineering at TU Wien and is affiliated with the Institute of Chemical, Environmental and Bioscience Engineering. He obtained his PhD from the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences working on developing bioprocesses for microbial chemical production based on renewable resources. He completed stays abroad at the University of Kent and Technische Universität München. At TU Wien, his research focuses on the development of processes and microbial hosts for converting complex raw materials into value-added products. One focus is the use of gaseous substrates from industrial sites to produce fuels and chemicals.

He has experience in engineering of bacteria using state-of-the-art tools and the use of advanced, continuous cultivation techniques to develop efficient microbial bioprocesses but also to gain basic knowledge on the performance of microbes and identify targets for strain improvement.

The overall vision of his research is to contribute “sustainable bioprocess solutions” that could help the transition towards a circular bioeconomy.
