Ingolf Voigt, Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS, Germany

Ingolf VoigtIngolf Voigt studied chemistry at Friedrich-Schiller University Jena, Germany. He earned his PhD degree in the field of solid state chemistry in 1993. He joined Hermsdorf Institute of Technical Ceramics (HITK) and started the development of ceramic membranes based on sol-gel technique resulting in the worldwide first ceramic nanofiltration membrane in 2000.

He became Head of the Department of Ceramic Membranes and expanded the membrane activities to zeolite membranes, carbon membranes and perovskite membranes which are used for pervaporation, vapor permeation as well as gas separation. With about 50 people the group became one of the biggest international inorganic membrane groups. In 2010 HITK merged with Fraunhofer IKTS and Ingolf Voigt became Head of the Department of Environmental Engineering and Bioenergy.

In 2012 he was appointed to the Deputy Director of the Fraunhofer IKTS including a specific responsibility for the Research Field Environmental and Process Engineering. Ingolf Voigt is inventor/co-inventor of 18 patents and has authored/co-authored 220 oral presentations and research publications.
