Pioneering the way to a sustainable world
Fraunhofer UMSICHT is pioneering the way to a sustainable world. With our research on carbon management, circular economy, green hydrogen and local energy systems, we make concrete contributions to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations.
We develop innovative, industrially feasible technologies, products and services for the circular economy and bring them to application. The focus is on the balance of economically successful, socially equitable and sustainable developments.
The institute has sites in Oberhausen, Willich and Sulzbach-Rosenberg. In 2022, Fraunhofer UMSICHT generated a turnover of 58 million euros with a workforce of 600 employees. As an institute of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, the world’s leading applied research organization, we are globally networked and promote international cooperation.
