The Research Training Group:
Renewable raw materials are becoming increasingly important as an alternative resource base in industrial corporate networks. The RTG develops methods to improve the efficient use of renewable resources in production processes with by-products. The investigation focuses on wood and other fibrous raw materials used in the manufacturing and process industry. The aim is cascade utilization, thus the multiple utilization of a raw material before its conversion into energy. Several levels of the value chain as well as steering cross-divisional functions are taken into consideration.
