Summary of company profile Ref no
Applied Research and development using renewable raw materials for bio-based plastics (material development, compounding, processing) and for energy technologies DE-KH-91
Fraunhofer UMSICHT develops applied and custom-made process engineering technologies. Assuming a leading position in the fields of environmental and material technologies, process engineering and energy technology, Fraunhofer UMSICHT is committed to sustainable economic development, environmentally friendly technologies and innovative approaches designed to improve the standard of living and to promote the innovation capacity of the national economy.
We develop and optimize technical processes for the production of materials and for the generation of energy from renewable resources and biogenous residues. Our strengths lie in the application of biotechnological processes and chemical conversion steps as well as in plastics technology.
We focus on environmentally compatible generation of power, heat and cold, on sustainable production of platform chemicals and on the development of novel materials and products. Our laboratories and pilot plants allow us to scale-up from first samples of new materials to small scale production.
Our R&D Service:
Project development and scientific consulting for biogas plants
Development and optimization of biotechnological processes, downstream processing
Research of new chemical synthesis pathways and production of new polycondensates
Material and product development
Pilot and small scale production of polymer compounds and products
Material characterization for polymer materials
Analysis of biodegradability of substances, materials and residues
Market and feasibility studies, technological assessments

Industrial Sectors and Target Groups:
Plastics processing industry
Packaging industry
Automotive and automotive supplier industry
Energy suppliers
Recycling and waste disposal industry
Chemical industry
Food industry
Innovation and advantages
The primary objectives of sustainable development are the reduction of environmental pollution and the conservation of finite fossil fuels. These goals can be achieved by using renewable raw materials. Only by understanding and preserving nature, we will be able to benefit from its resources in the long run.
