Resource Recovery

Waste from agriculture and industry can be converted by (bio-) technological processes into high-quality raw materials for chemical processes.

The processing of agricultural and industrial products generates considerable amounts of waste. However, there is still considerable material and energetic potential in these wastes, which must first be tapped through suitable processes. For example, from waste from agriculture or food production with biotechnology-based applications, basic building blocks for the synthesis of new products can be transformed. Furthermore, treated by means of microorganisms wastewater of the metal processing and at the same time rare earths and valuable metals are recovered.
