The Fraunhofer WKI specializes in bio-based chemical products and materials, production technology, functional integration, lightweight construction, material and product testing, recycling processes and indoor air quality. Almost all processes, materials and products resulting from our research activities are used industrially. We operate worldwide and work project-related with research institutions and industrial partners, e. g. with companies from the wood and furniture industries, the construction industry, the chemical industry, the packaging industry and the automotive industry. Our particular strength is our holistic research approach. We develop materials and technologies for a bio-based, resource-conserving and climate-friendly economic cycle - from raw materials to development and quality assurance to recycling.
