Welcome to 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.
Accessibility in times of Corona
The corona pandemic presents us all with major challenges. In order to slow down the spread of the virus and to protect the health of everyone, the majority of the IWKS team now works in the home office. We can be reached there by phone or e-mail and try to keep restrictions on project work to a minimum.
We thank you for your understanding and look forward to a further successful cooperation.
