Welcome to the Fraunhofer Project Group Materials Recycling and Resource Strategies IWKS in Alzenau and Hanau
The scarcity of resources is a major topic in the economic and social development of industrialised nations. That‘s why we want to improve resource and energy efficiency wherever possible. This includes an optimised allocation (of resources). We focus on this future-oriented task through research and development on new recycling technologies and substitutes
for scarce raw materials and materials. Our goal is to make materials and valuable substances recyclable. In close collaboration with our partners, we develop innovative separation and sorting methods, treatment procedures as well as new resource-efficient products that secure a technological advance for our customers. Cutting-edge scientific and technological knowledge is realized in sustainable applications and products customised
for best economic and technical viability.
Our core competencies are concentrated in three business divisions:
• Secondary Materials
• Functional Materials
• Strategies and Network
