Are you ready for the future? Production must change.
Time is running out. Technological innovations are vital if the climate and sustainability targets that have been agreed worldwide are to be anywhere even close to being achieved in the coming years. But how can the growing demands of soon more than eight billion people be reconciled with the urgent need for lower emissions, energy and material consumption?
Technological progress must not get bogged down in the basics of research here, but must develop into practical applications. After all, it is only through efficient and at the same time ecological series production that new, more sustainable products and goods - and thus a compatible level of long-term wealth - will become affordable for everyone.
The Fraunhofer IPT is working with scientific methods to make the true ecological costs of production measurable. Together with our partners from research and industry, we use this knowledge to develop new environmentally and climate-friendly manufacturing processes and products.
