At the general meeting of the DGMK Deutsche Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Erdöl, Erdgas Kohle e.V. on 7 November 2019 in Hamburg, elections were held for the board of directors, the departments, and the scientific advisory board.

The members elected Frederic Sager as member of the board as treasurer of the DGMK. He succeeds Dr. Dirk Elvermann, who will resign from his office at the end of the year. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Reinhold Elsen was confirmed as head of the DGMK's Coal and Biomass Refinement Division. Prof. Dr. Dieter Vogt will take over as head of the Petrochemistry Department after the long-standing head of the department, Prof. Dr. Stefan Ernst, passed away unexpectedly at the beginning of the year.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Andreas Jess was again appointed to the Scientific Advisory Board. Prof. Dr. Christoph Hilgers was newly elected to the scientific advisory board.

There was also a timely amendment to the statutes. The Coal and Biomass Refining Division will in future be called the Carbon Conversion Division.
