S.T.E.P. Rautenbach Yüce Gebel Consulting GmbH is a small independent consultant company based in Aachen/Germany working in the field of Energy- and Process- Engineering for more than 10 years. The main focus of the engineering work lies on membrane separation techniques and evaporation processes for drinking and wastewater treatment on one side and on energy supply by dual-purpose systems on the other side. The S.T.E.P. Consulting is offering all engineering and consultancy services which are generally necessary for the proper realization of a project: starting with a preliminary design including feasibility and economic-efficiency figures, going on to approval design and pre-paration of tender documents, checking and evaluating the bids and finally supervising construction, commissioning, and guarantee test.
The registered office of S.T.E.P. Rautenbach Yüce Gebel Consulting GmbH is located in the time-honoured town of Aachen. The engineers working as full- or part-time employees at S.T.E.P. hold a diploma from RWTH Aachen University in mechanical engineering, process engineer-ing, or civil engineering.
The managing partner of S.T.E.P. Consulting GmbH, Dr.-Ing. Süleyman Yüce und Dr.-Ing. Joachim Gebel, each received a doctor’s degree from RWTH Aachen University for their scientific work at the Institut für Ver-fahrenstechnik with Prof. Robert Rautenbach.
Prof. Rautenbach was head of the former Institute of Chemical Engi-neering, now AVT (Aachener VerfahrensTechnik, which means: Aachen Chemical Engineering) for more than 30 years. After having been given emeritus status in 1996, he joined S.T.E.P. as partner in 1998 until his passing in 2000. By mentioning his name in the company’s name, we would like to pay homage to Robert Rautenbach’s work in the field of seawater desalination.
Dr.-Ing. Süleyman Yüce’s dual role as senior engineer at the Institut für Verfahrenstechnik is a strong link between the ongoing research & de-velopment activities at one of the biggest technical universities in Ger-many and our company. Thus, S.T.E.P. is able to offer experiments on lab scale and pilot plant tests to her clients performed and evaluated by RWTH institutes working in the relevant fields.
Acting as specialists for process and energy engineering, we strengthen our performance if necessary through a collaboration with other experts like architects, civil engineers, structural engineers and building services engineers.
