Plastics in the environment are a big problem for our ecosystems. We assume that the amounts of macro- and micro-plastics will increase in the future due to their long-term environmental stability. Existing knowledge gaps must be closed, plastic emissions reduced, and solutions developed.
Solutions and services of Fraunhofer UMSICHT
Due to the interdisciplinary cooperation of several departments at Fraunhofer UMSICHT, we are looking at the topic “Plastics in the environment” from different perspectives: We can carry out sustainability assessments and systemic analyses as well as offer technical solutions using optimized process and filter techniques or tailor-made bio-based plastics.
Unique selling points
Our many years of experience and our versatile competences give us different perspectives on the topic. In this way, we can differentiate between plastics and their environmental fate and work out ways of avoiding them. Our technical equipment allows us to perform a variety of laboratory tests and analyses, from product development to subsequent product evaluation. In addition, we can advise you technically and strategically on plastics in the environment.
