Fraunhofer-Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV — Division Biogenic Raw Materials
The Fraunhofer IVV is your partner for research and development tasks from industry. In addition to industrial research, we also work on publicly funded research projects.
In the business unit Biogenic Raw Materials, we deal with the energetic and material utilization of raw and residual materials from agriculture and food industries. We analyze, fractionate and modify animal and plant source materials and develop sustainable, value-adding utilization strategies outside the food sector, such as for biofuels and combustibles, cooling lubricants and basic materials for industrial applications, e.g., coatings for packaging materials. The focus is on the complete utilization of raw or residual materials and thus on the recovery and modification of (non-food) oils and fats as well as proteins, fibers, and secondary plant ingredients as functional fractions.
