Regional - Business Location Rhine-Main

The Fraunhofer IWKS is actively involved in shaping awareness of resource conservation in the region. The aim of the network's work is to bundle knowledge in networks and offer tailor-made solutions for the region's players. Through close cooperation with university institutions, findings from basic research are demonstrated on a pilot scale by Fraunhofer, making them available to industry.


National - Saving Resources

As a high-tech and innovation location, Germany has a high demand for (critical) raw materials and is dependent on imports. In order to maintain its technological pioneering role and keep dependencies as low as possible, it is extremely important to pool national competencies. Together with universities, colleges, research institutes, industry, logistics, associations and politics, Fraunhofer IWKS develops solutions.


International - Sustainability

Worldwide, the use of raw materials has been steadily increasing for years and, measured by the growth of the world population and the global economic growth, the demand for raw materials will continue to increase strongly.
The sustainable use of our resources is a global issue. Also on an international level, the Fraunhofer IWKS offers solutions and answers to global questions concerning the efficient use and turnover of resources.
