As leading contract research organization we provide research and development services to our customers and partners from industry, other research organizations and universities for more than 30 years. Transferring requirements into workable and customer friendly solutions we secure a competitive edge and head start in innovation. Based on our profound experience in microsystem technology we accept challenges others don’t due to a lack of knowledge/experience or interest.
With our project work we contribute to the Fraunhofer Strategic Research Fields of Hydrogen Technologies, Resource Efficiency and Climate Technologies, Digital Healthcare and Bioeconomy.
Webinar “Go for green: Microreactors in electrochemical flow synthesis”
In the webinar on June 14, 2023, we point out the relevance of microreactor technology for the implementation of electrochemical processes and outline your benefits in a possible cooperation in terms of time, money and resources.
We congratulate Nils Baumgarten on the successful defense! Baumgarten's thesis deals with an electrochemical microreactor for carrying out electrochemical syntheses in continuous operation and studies the influence of operating conditions on selectivity and energy efficiency.
Research News: "From a greenhouse gas to an industrial raw material"
Rather than being released into the atmosphere and exacerbating the problem of climate change, CO2 can also be used as a raw material for substances required in industrial processes, such as formic acid or methanol.
Fraunhofer process increases methane yield from biogas plants
Biogas plants produce methane along with more than 40 percent CO2 which has been released into the atmosphere in conventional biogas plants. Researchers from the IMM have now found a way to convert this waste product into additional methane, thus drastically increasing the methane yield from biogas plants. The process is up and running and the research team is currently scaling up the demonstration plant to five cubic meters of methane per hour.
