    RePhoRM: Regional phosphorus recycling in the Rhine-Main area considering industrial and agricultural material cycles

    The cooperation project RePhoRM is a research and development project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of the funding program “Research for Sustainable Development (FONA3)” on the topic “Regional Phosphorus Recycling (RePhoR)”. The Department of Material Flow Management and Resource Economy participates with a “screening LCA” for the orienting ecological assessment of different concepts of phosphorus recycling.

    JPI-O Microplastic PLASTOX: Direct and indirect ecotoxicological impacts of microplastics on marine organisms

    Investigation of adsorption/desorption behavior of pollutants on microplastics (MPs) in batch tests in Laboratory as well as long-term field test in European marine environment

    PLASTOX is one of four consortia under the JPI Oceans Pilot Action “Ecological Aspects of Microplastics” and consists of 15 partners from 11 Member States. The project will investigate the ingestion, foodweb transfer, and ecotoxicological impact of microplastics (MPs), together with persistent organic pollutants (POPs), metals and plastic additive chemicals, on key European marine species and ecosystems. To study ecological effects of MPs, laboratory tests will be combined with field-based observations at stations representing a wide range of European marine environments (Mediterranean, Adriatic, North, and Baltic Seas and the Atlantic).

    Eco-factor world – webconsultation

    Within a research project with the partner Fraunhofer project group IWKS, country-specific environmental assessment factors were developed for the countries USA, Southafrica, India, Mexico, Russia, China, Brasil and Argentina. Environmental assessment factors were developed fo the environmental problems “climate change”, “scarcity of energy resources”, “air pollution”, “waste”, “scarcity of freshwater resources” and “emissions to surface waters”. These environmental assessment factors are presented to experts, which have a national background and expertise regarding the specific enviornmental probelm, in a webconusltation and their feedback will be solicited.

    Eco-factor world – envionmental problem noise pollution

    Within a research project with the partner Fraunhofer project group IWKS, country-specific environmental assessment factors were developed for the environmental problem “noise pollution”. These environmental assessment factors have been developed for the eight countries USA, South Africa, India, Mexico, Russia, China, Brazil and Argentina and are being applied within the environmental management of Volkswagen AG. Volkswagen AG has successfully implemented the so-called “SEBU method” for over 10 years in environmental management.

    FahrKLang: Verbrauchs- und Emissionsbewertung von Fahrzeugantriebskonzepten für die Langstreckenmobilität der Zukunft

    Die Studie FahrKlang hat zum Ziel, Verbrauchs- und Emissionswerte verschiedener PKW-Antriebskonzepten über den gesamten Lebenszyklus zu vergleichen und sie einer ganzheitlichen ökologischen Bewertung zu unterziehen. Die Antriebe werden dabei für die Langstreckenmobilität Deutschlands untersucht. Zu den verschiedenen Antriebskonzepten zählen konventionelle Verbrennungsmotoren, verschiedene hybride Antriebskonzepte, batterieelektrische Antriebsstränge sowie die Nutzung strombasierter Kraftstoffe.

    Resource efficiency through the digital transformation of the industry in SMEs

    To secure the future of the industrial site of Germany, the topic “digital industry transformation” is crucial. The vertical integration in value networks and horizontal integration in production systems have a potential to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the production. A resource-efficient and customized manufacturing brings competitive advantages to compete with other production sites.

    Eco-factor world – concept environmental problem waste

    Within a research project with the partner Fraunhofer project group IWKS, country-specific environmental assessment factors were developed for the environmental problem area “waste”. These environmental assessment factors have been developed for the eight countries USA, South Africa, India, Mexico, Russia, China, Brazil and Argentina and are being applied within the environmental management of Volkswagen AG.

    Eco-factor world – concept environmental problem waste

    Within a research project with the partner Fraunhofer project group IWKS, a concept for the development of country-specific environmental assessment factors for the environmental problem area “waste” was developed. This concept serves as the basis for a follow-up project for environmental assessment factors for the eight countries USA, South Africa, India, Mexico, Russia, China, Brazil and Argentina, which are to be applied in the environmental management of Volkswagen AG.

    PHOENIX: Synergic Combination of High Performance Flame-Retardant Nanolayered Hybrid Particles as a Real Alternative to Halogen-Based Flame-Retardant Additives

    Electrical and electronic devices – domestic appliances, cables, electrical components – are the major area of application of flame retardants. From an environmental point of view, halogenated flame retardants are problematic because they contain persistent and toxic substances which bear the danger of forming highly toxic dioxins in the case of fire.

    CSIA-X: Developing a Method to Determine Isotope Ratios for Chlorine and Bromine in the Aqueous Phase

    The goal is to develop an innovative, quick method of sample preparation based on an “Einkolbenreaktion”, with which bromine or chlorine in the water phase is converted to different brominated or chlorinated compounds. To determine both the chlorine and bromine isotope ratio of the converted compounds, a new technique will be employed that was developed by Dr.-Ing. Sakaguchi-Söder.
