Welcome to the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Materials Recycling and Resource Strategies IWKS
We stand for the responsible use of resources. For the use of resources - not consumption. Recovering recyclable materials from a product cycle and reintroducing them into a new cycle. This is the goal of our research.
In particular, the targeted energy revolution, the mobility revolution and digitization are accompanied by an increased demand for specific raw materials, without which the respective technological functionalities cannot be realized. Together with industrial partners, we are developing efficient processes and technologies for the responsible use of the earth's resources.
