CreativeQuantum is involved in the Bio-Z joint project

  • 03.09.2021

Bio-Z is a project in the BMBF program 'WIR! - Change through Innovation in the Region'. WIR! provides the impetus for new regional alliances and sustainable innovation-based structural change for positive transformation in all structurally weak regions of Germany.

The collaborative project takes a cooperative approach to jointly design development and processing pathways for bio-based products and services. Climate-neutral processes and renewable raw materials provide solutions that mitigate climate change and create secure long-term jobs in the region.

The BioZ project kicked off its concept phase about 11 months ago. Since then, the consortium has grown to 70 alliance partners. Our kick-off meeting with 20 participants was followed by five more digital alliance meetings and seven dialogue group meetings. The result of this collaboration: a concept consisting of 40 pages, 70 LOIs and 16 R&D project descriptions.

The next step is now the evaluation by a jury of experts. BioZ must prevail against 43 other alliances in this process - only 25 initiatives will move on to the next phase and have the chance to receive funding of up to 15 million €. On 17.08.2021 the presentation of the alliance project to the reviewers then took place and has convinced. Now the individual projects will be worked out in detail.

E4MeWi - Research project for an energy-efficient renewable energy based methanol economy

  • 01.11.2020

Two start-ups, two research institutes and one joint location - these are the players in the E4MeWi network. Together we want to and will demonstrate that it is possible to produce sustainably produced, i.e. 'green', methanol in decentralized modular plants at competitive costs.

Thanks to the funding of the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi), the E4MeWi project allows us to continue our own exploratory work in the digital world of quantum mechanics, innovative container construction and laboratory research. Based on the experimental proof-of-concept, we will prove by the end of 2023 that this disruptive approach is not only convincing in the laboratory, but also in a container demonstrator facility in a real industrial environment. We are supported by the associated project partner Chemiepark Bitterfeld-Wolfen.

VCI: True innovation only through advanced technology

  • 11.08.2012

The Chemical Industry Association VCI reaffirms with the "FORMEL für Ressourceneffizienz" that new solutions for energy- and resource-efficient production processes can only come through research. Progress is also possible through the optimization of existing production processes. But great leaps in efficiency require several factors. You need the capabilities of classical chemistry and they need the most advanced technology! [Chemistry Special Report 07.2012]

This concerns in particular the development and optimization of catalytic systems with the help of high technology 'Computer-aided quantum mechanics.
The issue of energy- and resource-efficiency is already the most important factor for sustainable business and it will be under the global competition for resources even more critical.
We are proud that our customers from the industry and industry-related research, benefit already from our services with this technology in the development of more efficient processes.
