Improving life cycle assessment - but how?

We help companies reduce their CO2 emissions: In the "ÖkologWi" research project, we have developed a software demonstrator that can be used to calculate emissions and savings potential. Are you interested in testing the demonstrator free of charge?

Generator gains energy from environment

In the future, we will be able to supply power to sensors - without cables or batteries - so they can record their own measured data. We are developing a generator that uses energy harvesting to extract the energy directly from its environment.
