Institute of Natural Materials Technology
What we do....
The core competences of our institute are injection moulding as well as extrusion using different natural materials, as well as industrial wastes. Starting with the analysis and preparation of various raw materials, material modication, experimental design developments, up to processing using our pilot plant facilities. Materails will be characterized and tested at own labs as well. Natural materials such as starch, proteins and natural lignocellulosic fibres, by-products and wastes coming from food, paper and wood industries are utilized as raw materials. Basis research activities are ellaborated within the Sustainable Biomaterails Group.
