Fraunhofer IKTS

Fraunhofer is Europe’s largest application-oriented research organization. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft undertakes applied research of direct for use by private and public enterprise and of benefit to society working on projects with applied research and demonstration activities for industrial applications, amongst others. The Fraunhofer-Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS, situated in Dresden and Hermsdorf, covers the complete field of advanced ceramics, from basic research to applications. The IKTS undertakes work on the development and application of modern high performance materials, on the development of industrial powder technologies in order to produce these materials and on the manufacturing of prototypical components. The R&D process follows all the stages of product development, from production of the materials to the development and optimization of the structure/property relationships through to the application/system integration stage. For of nano-porous materials like MOFs or alumosilicates, IKTS has multiple equipment and substantial know-how to develop granules, pellets, honeycombs or other components for various applications. Furthermore, IKTS possess numerous methods for characterization of nano-porous materials and components.
