Sustainability and efficiency: the new trends driving the plastics industry

With a combined workforce of almost 300,000 employees, plastics is one of Germany’s major industrial sectors. The industry also enjoys a strong position on the international stage, due in no small part to its productive research performance. At this year’s “K” trade fair, the world’s leading industry event for plastics, a total of 11 Fraunhofer Institutes will be exhibiting innovative, sustainable and efficient concepts, developments and solutions for the plastics industry (October 16–23; booth SC01, hall 7).

Affordable and mobile purification of dialysis water

People who suffer from end stage renal desease frequently undergo dialysis on a fixed schedule. For patients this artificial washing of the blood is a major burden. To remove toxins from the blood, large quantities of dialysis water for clearance are required. Until now there has been no solution so far to recover this dialysate cost-effectively. Therefore a cryo-purification method is being developed by Fraunhofer researchers that clears the water without loosing it. This approach not only reduces costs – it may even pave the way for a wearable artificial kidney by milder long-term dialysis treatment at complete water autonomy.
