BioEconomy Cluster

The leading-edge BioEconomy Cluster integrates research and industrial activities relevant to the bioeconomy in Central Germany. The cluster’s core objective is the sustainable value creation from non-food biomass such as wood as input for the production of materials, chemical products and energy. Fraunhofer CBP assumes a pivotal role in scaling up and industrial implementation of the production processes developed.

BioZ

With more than 60 partners, BioZ is building a cross-sector innovation ecosystem along value chains with high innovation potentials in the agricultural, food and chemical industries. The innovation area lies in the biobased economy and is defined by the strengths and competencies available in the region. Fraunhofer CBP is involved both as a scientific coordinator and as an open scaling platform. The declared goal is the implementation of innovative ideas for the use of regionally generated material flows and thus the acceleration of structural change in the Central German region.

4chiral

4chiral is a network for fine chemicals in the Central German chemistry triangle, developing new products and technologies and transferring them into production. With its motto "Our core competence is fine organic synthesis"“ the network is conducting research and development projects in the field of chiral compounds, whereby the main focus is on pharmaceutical relevant enantiomers.

High-Performance Center Chemical and Biosystems Technology

The strategic goal of the High-Performance Center Chemical and Biosystems Technology is to investigate and optimize process chains in the plastic-processing, chemical, biotechnological and biomedical industries – from raw materials to the product – in the Halle-Leipzig region. To this end, the scientific institutions in greater Halle-Leipzig and the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg will work even more intensively with companies in the area in order to decisively stimulate added value in the Halle-Leipzig region. The High-Performance Center Chemical and Biosystems Technology will advance both excellence in research and sustainable regional development through the transfer of knowledge and technology.

HYPOS – Hydrogen Power Storage & Solutions East Germany

HYPOS aims to convert excess renewable electricity into the storable chemical energy carrier hydrogen and integrate, by means of an intelligent connection of hydrogen production, with the infrastructure of gas pipelines and gas storage facilities into the energy system. Via the “green” hydrogen, the chemical network, the natural gas supply system, and the electricity supply network in East Germany are connected in an exemplary manner. Within HYPOS, Fraunhofer CBP acts as a research partner mainly in the use of “green” hydrogen.

Science Campus Halle – Plant-Based Bioeconomy (WCH)

The Science Campus Halle (WCH) pursues the systematic and sustained development of a multi-disciplinary center for plant-based bioeconomy. The WCH thus provides an important base for future applications such as those implemented industrially in the neighboring regional leading-edge BioEconomy cluster, as well as interdisciplinary-trained professionals for industry. Fraunhofer CBP is an associate member of the WCH.
