Centre for Resource Efficiency

We support companies as a competent partner able to develop sustainable solutions for the optimisation of production processes and products.

Through our training and continuing education programmes, as well as by pursuing applied research and development, our aim is to improve resource efficiency in industry. The methods we develop and apply are designed to analyse and optimise the use of material resources and energy. Not only does this protect the environment, it also saves money. This is an especially worthwhile challenge in connection with current developments such as Industry 4.0 and electromobility.

Our starting points:

  • Development resource-efficient products
  • Optimisation of production processes
  • Detection and assessment of material flows
  • Recovery of valuable raw materials from complex mixtures
