Services of Area 3

Especially for new value chains or value cycles that need to be optimized we provide answers and solutions to the following questions:

  • What resources are available and what treatment/conversion methods must be applied to enable industries to replace their fossil resources with renewable ones?
  •  What are the non-technical barriers and supporting factors for potential bioeconomy solutions?
  • How can the total added value be increased for a specific raw material or residue (e.g. deciduous wood, sewage sludge)?
  • How are the different value cycles linked to each other?
  • How is sustainability evaluated in all three dimensions (ecological, economic, social)?
  • How can we consider the needs of end customers in R&D projects?
