In Germany, the energy system is restructured focusing renewable sources. The defined climate objectives are ambitious. Thus, huge efforts and cooperation of all social groups are necessary. Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety, and Energy Technology paves the way for a sustainable energy and resource industry, provides scientific facts and realises the transfer in companies, society and politics.
Currently, there are almost 500 committed employees, convincing our cooperation partners with sustainable products, processes and services. Three locations in Oberhausen, Sulzbach-Rosenberg and Willich (Plastics Technical Center) belong to Fraunhofer UMSICHT.
As pioneers in energy and raw materials industries, the globally networked institute seeks out innovations to contribute to a resource-conserving society and economy. Knowledge, technologies, products and services in the fields of polymer materials, chemistry, environment, biomass and energy are optimised forcing the application level.
