Development – Material Cycles – Trouble Shooting
The Laboratory for Technical Biopolymers is a project funded by the State of Bavaria and serves to support companies, especially SMEs, on their way to innovative and sustainable substances and materials as well as to resource-efficient processes. At Fraunhofer IGB, specialists from chemistry, biology and process engineering are working together on the project.
Our goal is the development of new bioplastics. Research focuses on the production of monomer building blocks from biomass, polymerization, material development and end-of-life scenarios. In this way, a cycle can be established and realized from the natural substance via the use of the manufactured materials back to nature.
