Against the backdrop of “sustainable chemistry” the BioCat Group aims to accelerate and decisively shape the development of the new generation of catalysts and processes. For this, BioCat works closely with the TU München, the departments of Fraunhofer IGB, and the branch Sulzbach- Rosenberg of Fraunhofer UMSICHT. In collaborative projects, topics for the conversion of renewable resources and the use of hydrocarbons to store electrical energy are pursued.
