This section provides information on project descriptions and publications detailing the best available environmental technology in Germany today. The projects published by Cleaner Production Germany are mainly national case studies on environmental protection which has been integrated into the production process. These projects are sponsored by Germany’s national and regional ministries, Länder-level agencies, or foundations with a governmental mandate. They include, for example, in-depth descriptions of large-scale projects sponsored and verified by Germany’s Environment Ministry (BMU) and Federal Environment Agency (UBA) which demonstrate new ways of avoiding environmental pollution or reducing it significantly. The German Ministry of Education and Research also publishes the results of its research into innovative technologies to protect the environment here.

The section is rounded off by publications (final project reports and research papers) for download and information regarding statutory regulations and specialist events.

The carbamate process was further developed once the basic technology had been patented. The results have led to an improvement in both process economy and process ecology. The technology is very well suited to adaptation to existing viscose systems, thus keeping the requirements for capital investment low.
The newly developed process has economic advantages, in addition to being more environmentally compatible. The carbamate spun fibres can be used in their pure form or as a mixture. The achievable fibre properties could mean enhanced economic advantages for the German fibre and textile industry.
The advanced cellulose carbamate process represents an environmentally compatible alternative to the traditional viscose process; it is intentionally similar to the latter and thus allows for cost-effective revamping or improvement of the process, as well as for the development of viscose-like products with good prospects for success.

The measurements showed that using lower emission road sweepers can reduce emissions of particulate matter (PM10) in the sweeping process by over 90%. The sweepers also collected over 80% of the test dust and can thus be considered to do their job very efficiently. Expand…
A combination of different membrane technologies is used to treat the circulation water in a new fish farm. The facility produces no wastewater and is energy-efficient.
The anticorrosion coating developed under the project contains very few organic solvents and is particularly suitable for coating metal surfaces in automotive manufacturing. It is applied in a single layer and hardens at low temperatures.
Packaging with an arched structure has a number of advantages over rolled or embossed packaging materials. In comparison to conventional moulded materials, the arched structure provides greater rigidity with significantly reduced material consumption. Similarly, the consumption of resources, waste production and manufacturing costs associated with the production of packaging can be reduced. More detailed information can be found in this German language brochure.
PDF-IconA taste of the future: Socio-ecological agricultural and nutrition research
The seven German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) projects presented in this brochure are aimed at developing strategies that would result in improved sustainability of agriculture and eating habits in our society. Despite their diverse core themes, they all take into account social, economic and ecological factors. Further information is available in the German-language article.
The materials were developed from the grist and flour of starch-rich and/or protein-rich agricultural products. It was necessary to use this raw material in order to achieve competitive production costs compared with conventional mass-produced plastics. Materials with various characteristics were produced. The manufactured extrudates have various expansion properties and range from brittle to elastic. Expand…
