Hannover Messe: Fraunhofer WKI shows two current research projects for transport & building construction
At the Hannover Messe from April 17 to 21, the Fraunhofer WKI is exhibiting a sustainable crash-barrier system made from highly stress-resistant wood-composite elements as well as efficient and resource-saving building products from construction waste and plant residues.
You will find the two innovations at the joint booth “Showcase Bioeconomy” of the Projektträger Jülich (PtJ) and the Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe e. V. (FNR): Hall 2, booth A33
The joint booth will present research results from current bioeconomy projects funded by the German Federal Ministries of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) and Education and Research (BMBF).

The background of the Fraunhofer WKI
Sustainability through the utilization of renewable raw materials has formed the focus at the Fraunhofer WKI for 75 years. The institute, with locations in Braunschweig, Hanover, and Wolfsburg, specializes in process engineering, natural-fiber composites, binders and coatings, wood and emission protection, quality assurance of wood products, material and product testing, recycling procedures and the utilization of organic building materials and wood in construction. Virtually all the procedures and materials resulting from the research activities are applied industrially.
