Welcome to the homepage of TRePro III 2014 - A workshop on Modelling of Coupled Transport Reaction Processes


TRePro III 2014 is the sixth meeting in the series of Karlsruhe Geochemical Workshops. The first workshop, held in 1997 at Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe, was concerned with “Geochemical modelling - radiotoxic and toxic chemical substances in natural aquatic systems”. The second meeting was held in 1999 in Speyer focusing on “Mineral/water interactions close to equilibrium”. TRePro 2002, held in Karlsruhe, dealt with “Modelling of coupled transport reaction processes”. SoPro 2005 held again in Karlsruhe treated sorption processes on oxide and carbonate minerals. TRePro II 2009 took up the idea of TRePro 2002 and is now followed by the third workshop on reactive transport, TRePro III 2014.



The intention of TRePro III 2014 is to serve as a platform for discussing the latest developments in modelling of coupled reaction and transport processes (advection and diffusion controlled systems). The main idea of the workshop is to enhance the discussion between experimentalists and modellers from different domains.


TRePro III 2014 covers the following topics:

A Precipitation / dissolution: clogging phenomena - kinetics - heterogeneity - co-precipitation

B Colloids: filtration - generation - retention phenomena

C Temperature and salinity effects - swelling mechanics – porosity

D Sorption/Desorption and redox processes: kinetics -competition

E Computational aspects - needs for performance assessment - exploration - remediation - renewable energies

F Emerging fields: from microscopic analyses to macroscopic predictions
