Polymer Engineering

By combining mechanical engineering, process engineering, polymer analytics, simulation and competence in specific product applications, we want develop and demonstrate high-performance materials based on biobased molecules to resolve the contradiction between sustainability and economic growth. We are engineers, industrial engineers and chemists who want to experience the results of their research in people's everyday lives.


Our research focusses on:

  • Processing of biobased polymers
  • Functional additives for biobased materials
  • Upscaling from lab to production
  • New biobased materials like fibres from aerogels
  • We have a strong focus on fibre materials
