Power and Environmental Engineering

Accelerating developments around the energy turnaround in energy and environmental technology: Our solutions facilitate performance and efficiency increases both in renewable energies – such as wind energy, solar energy and hydropower – and in the use of conventional energy sources in modern power plant technology. We consistently focus on combining the ecological and economic aspects of sustainability.

Our scientists support the urgently needed changes in the industry with their expertise in surface, materials and laser technology in order to drive progress in key future and innovation areas. Concrete starting points arise, for example, in the hydrogen economy and in the development of sustainable manufacturing processes for battery cells. In environmental technology, in addition to measurement and analysis processes in air and filter technology, we are also dedicating ourselves to environmentally friendly coating and cleaning solutions and the recycling of valuable raw materials in line with the "green economy" approach.
