The SFB/TRR 102 will arrange an excursion to the Processing Pilot Plant for Biopolymers Schwarzheide on the February 21st, 2018. This research institution is part of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research (IAP).  Members of the SFB together with its integrated research training group of Martin-Luther-Universität and Universität Leipzig will get an insight  into research and the facilities of FhI and BASF in Schwarzheide.

About the institute

Bioplastics processing − R&D close to the market

With the establishment of the  Processing Pilot Plant for Biopolymers at BASF’s site Schwarzheide we develop contributions for processing of marketable and new biobased plastics. We benefit from the locational advantage of the chemical park in order to transfer the results of our research and development work faster to the market. The main goal is to help small and medium-sized plastics processors extend their product range to include biobased materials.
