Small, clean, efficient and affordable

DBFZ scientists develop mini cookstove for Africa

Deforestation in African regions and many other parts of the world is increasing rapidly. Against this background, a cookstove was developed for special requirements in Togo as part of the "LabTogo" project funded by the BMBF- The DBFZ's new development not only requires significantly less fuel than traditional stoves, but also has lower emissions during operation.

Project develops pilot plant for the full utilisation of wheat pulp

Bioenergy plants are rarely directly integrated into continuous processes in the industrial environment. The "Pülpegas" project aims to address this problem area by demonstrating wheat pulp mono-digestion on an industrial scale and by implementing an industrial biogas plant at the Zeitz site.
