    Fuel and chemicals from steel plant exhaust gases

    Carbon monoxide-rich exhaust gases from steel plants are only being reclaimed to a minor extent as power or heat. Fraunhofer researchers have developed a new recycling process for this materially unused carbon resource: They successfully produced fuel and specialty chemicals from these exha ... more

    Natural rubber from dandelions

    Dandelions are modest plants that are an excellent alternative source for a raw material of high demand: natural rubber, the fundamental ingredient in rubber products. Fraunhofer researchers have established the basis for the large-scale production of high quality rubber with Russian dandel ... more

    Dandelions as a new source of natural rubber

    More than 12,500 plants produce latex, a colorless to white milky sap that contains, among other things, natural rubber. However, this industrially indispensable raw material is found in only three plants in a quality required to produce high-performance rubber products such as car tires. more

    Animal Venomics

    More than 200,000 animal species produce poison to defend themselves against predators or to kill their prey. These poisons are usually complex mixtures of different toxins that have been functionally optimized over the course of evolution. For this reason, animal poisons are also a valuabl ... more
