Rapsöl als Ersatz für Chemierohstoffe auf petrochemischer Basis
Rapeseed oil as a substitute for chemical raw materials on a petrochemical basis

The human influence on global warming has increased exponentially since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. The quantity of the greenhouse gas „carbon dioxide“ in the atmosphere has risen by human impact by 50 % in the last 150 years.
Increasing hot summers in temperate zones, more frequent hurricanes, floods, rapidly melting glaciers are more than alarms.

Contributions for research and greater use of renewable energy and resource efficient use of material show steps in a direction in which the use of energy and chemical products is not associated with unnecessary pollution.

The Foundation supports scientists and engineers who are conducting research on this topic.
