Reference projects

Fraunhofer IGB is working successfully in numerous (joint) projects funded by German Federal Ministries or by foundations. Here we present a selection of current and completed projects.

  • Funding: BMBF || Duration: January 2016 – December 2017 || Fraunhofer IGB searches for new reaction routes and catalysts which can make the production of amines more sustainable. In the BMBF-funded Bi-Amin project BioCat branch in Straubing cooperate with the Technical University of Munich and industrial partners to develop a biotechnological process.

  • Wasser-epf

    Funding: BMWi || Duration: July 2017 – June 2019 || In the SENSOFLOC project, Fraunhofer IGB develops, in collaboration with an industrial partner, a sensor and a control system for automated control of floc blankets formed during electro-physical precipitation (EpF) for process water treatment. This enables the industrial implementation of the EpF process and the separation of finely dispersed or dissolved materials without any additional chemical demand.

    Various raw materials as building blocks for plastics.

    Funding: BMEL || Duration: April 2017 – March 2020 || In the TerPa project, new amorphous or semi-crystalline polyamides are produced from waste of wood processing with the aim of developing new application fields for high-performance materials.

  • Funding: BMWi || Duration: March 2017 – February 2020 || In the joint project eleMeMe, a new electrochemical process for methanol production will be developed and combined with a methanol fuel cell. With this concept the spatially and temporally independent decoupling of power generation and energy consumption in small as well as large scale applications should be demonstrated with Methanol as energy carrier.
