IFAT is the world's leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management and will take place in Munich this year from May 13 to 17. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft will be represented with a joint booth in Hall B2, stand 338. The Fraunhofer IGB will also be there with topics such as hydroponics/bioponics, recovering recyclable materials from wastewater, water purification and pollutant removal with plasmas, trace substance removal as well as drying and torrefaction processes. The InBiRa insect biorefinery will also be presented at the trade fair.

Water and nutrients: Bioponic and hydroponic resource recovery

  • Use of microorganisms for the conversion and mobilization of nutrients for hydroponic plant cultivation
  • Substitution of mineral fertilizers with nutrients contained in organic waste and wastewater
  • Circular bioeconomy through the reuse of water and nutrients
  • Concepts – Technologies – Analytics – Solutions

Industrial Biotechnology: InBiRa – Insect Biorefinery

  • Conversion of organic residues and waste into new, technically usable products
  • Utilization of fats, proteins and chitin from insect biomass
  • Pilot plant available

Water treatment: Removal of Micropollutants

Degradation of man-made pollutants in low concentrations, so-called organic trace substances or micropollutants.

Drying and torrefaction processes

  • Thermal water treatment
  • Drying with superheated steam
  • Torrefaction of lignocellulosic biomass
