Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology ICT
At the Fraunhofer ICT in Pfinztal over 540 employees carry out research and development work in the fields of energetic materials, energetic systems, applied electrochemistry, polymer engineering and environmental engineering.
The total area of the institute in Pfinztal is 200,000 m². This includes 25,000 m² of laboratories, offices, pilot plants, workshops, test stands and other facilities. This exceptional research infrastructure, which includes high-volume pilot plants and industrial-scale equipment, enables the institute to develop and implement new materials, processes and products up to near-industrial level. State-of-the-art laboratories, and all the necessary testing and analytical processes, are available for our research work. The Fraunhofer ICT has a close working relationship with numerous universities and colleges, especially with the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology KIT. Fundamental and application-oriented knowledge is utilized and further developed in hundreds of projects each year. The Fraunhofer ICT supports its clients and project partners from the original idea to the prototype phase or even to small-series production, according to their requirements. Clients and project partners are mostly from the automotive and transport sectors, as well as the fields of energy, environment, defense, security, and chemistry and process engineering.
