In this project, the TUM Professorship for Circular Economy accompanies together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (ISI) research projects in the field of industrial resource efficiency in their development process. The main part of the TUM in this project is the assessment of sustainability potentials which can be achieved through these research projects.
In the biotenside alliance research partners from universities, research organisations and industry develop new and sustainable tensides on the basis of renewable raw materials. In this project the TUM Professorship for Circular Economy coordinates the works on the sustainability assessment of the developed new products and processes.
