Nowadays, innovations in materials and products have to meet the goal of sustainable development. For us, this includes a drastic increase in resource efficiency, the redesign of the interaction between humans and technology, and a culture of innovation that is based on openness, participation, and interdisciplinarity.
We develop materials that are based on renewable and recyclable raw materials. We use supercritical fluids, biomimetic approaches and techniques of individualized and additive manufacturing as optimized processing techniques. In product development, we follow the principle of co-design and incorporate the users as users as innovators and stakeholders for the environment.
