The Institute

Industry and science depend on each other for creative ideas to become practicable solutions. In this context the aim of the institute is the development of ecologically and economically reasonable technical solutions for the energy and environmental sector, industry and service sector.

The Institute for Energy, Recycling and Environmental Protection (IEKrW), with its shareholders from industry and Bremen City University of Applied Science, interfaces the transfer between both areas ideally. On the one hand the waste management industry gets new ideas and professional advice, while Bremen University of Applied Science benefits through the practical experience of its partners for application-oriented research and development projects and for the education of its students.

(Renewable) energy projects, as well as projects for reuse, recycling and cycle management of resources are in the focus of the IEKrW. Chief task of the institute is the development of processes and concepts to enable the recycling and cycle management of substances, the efficient use of raw materials as well as the purification of waters, sludge, solid waste and exhaust air. The institute creates expert reports and acts as a consultant to companies, associations and public corporations. In the field of recycling and environmental protection the institute carries out measures for further education and organizes conferences. Many of the projects were, and are, carried out in cooperation with companies, universities and colleges throughout the Federal Republic of Germany. Contacts exist to partners in both European and non-European countries through international projects.
