Renewable Energies & Bioeconomy

The research division Renewable Energies & Bioeconomy focuses on innovations for climate-neutral energy production and novel environmental technologies. For example, new applications are being developed for agriculture, the digestion of biomass and the decontamination of food, exhaust air and water. Various atmospheric pressure plasma sources are used, such as dielectrically impeded discharges, jets, microwaves and microplasmas, which are extensively investigated experimentally. The research programme Green Energy Technologies develops components and concepts for the economic and efficient generation and use of renewable energies and energy carriers such as ammonia and hydrogen.


Agriculture, biomass & decontamination

The focus is on the development and optimisation of plasma-based processes for decontamination and hygiene for environmental protection, occupational and personal safety, food hygiene and medical facilities.
