Arne Koch studied Chemistry at Leipzig University and received his Master’s degree in 2018. His research focuses on the chemical and morphological analysis of aerosols formed during the processing of Carbon Concrete Composites (C³), a newly designed fiber-reinforced concrete material. To avoid health impairments as they were observed for asbestos concrete, C³ processing should be investigated prior to mass production. Since C³ reinforcement materials contain organic polymers as well as inorganic carbon fibers, knowledge about organic compounds and the morphology of fibers contained in the inhalable particulate matter of aerosols from dry cutting processes and thermally treated C³ materials shall help to understand and minimize possible health impairments.
