Sustainability Initiative

We are material scientists trying to relate materials research to sustainable practice that extends to everyday life activities. Our research focuses on the development of nanomaterials for renewable energy resources and health applications. Besides developing novel green energy generating or storing alternatives we also focus on the use of green chemical approaches. 

Sustainability plays a critical role in materials development leaving the choice of raw materials we are using or the environmental-friendly use of produced materials to us scientists. Therefore, we as scientists share a responsibility to support the sustainable advancement of our society on a global scale. Since sustainability is a global issue that goes far beyond the development of clean energy resources, the United Nations General Assembly identified 17 Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 as a „blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all“.
