Process Industry

How can workflows be improved, energy efficiency increased and operating costs reduced? Companies that extract, transport and process raw materials to manufacture semi-finished or high-quality end products by means of physical, mechanical and/or chemical processes are classified as process industries. The production process is characterized by flowing materials or media.

The services offered by the business unit “Process Industry” at Fraunhofer IPA are aimed at the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and steel industries. Experts from nine specialist departments are brought together in this one unit. Interdisciplinary teams develop solutions tailored to specific requirements along the entire value chain - from planning and development through to validation and quality assurance.
