The conscientious use of our natural resources and their protection constantly gains in importance. Against the background of rising energy costs and large waste quantites, the scientists of the Department of Waste Management and Material Flow primarily deal with issues on optimization the recycling and energetic utilization of biodegradable, renewable and recovered fuels. By realizing and improvement of energy efficient material cycles in the entire value chain an important contribution to recource and environmental protection can reached.


The focus of the research and development are in the fields:

  • Waste management and technology,
  • Recycling and energetic utilization of biomass
  • International waste management and bioenergy research
