The campaign’s partner companies present their sustainable innovations in the fields of biopolymers, plastics recycling and lightweight design in the following video:

Leichtbau – wie viel Hightech in Bushaltestellen steckt

Lightweight design – high-tech bus stops

Team Tejbrant designs and builds bus stops. Ordinary and yet truly special constructions. Why are aluminium profiles increasingly replacing steel? Boards made out of aluminium honeycombs and metal foams are technologies of the future, and are already being used today.

Leichtbau – in der Luftfahrt zählt jedes Gramm

Lightweight design – every gram counts in the aviation sector

The company KAPI Electronics manufactures flight recorders and safety systems for small aircrafts on-site at the airport grounds in Eberswalde. The use of lightweight design fabrics in the aviation sector is self-explanatory—it’s easier to fly with less weight. Some of the flight recorder housings have been manufactured by 3D printers.

Leichtbau – im Tiefbau

Lightweight design – in civil engineering

In cooperation with the Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg, the company LKT has developed the Flexreha procedure. This procedure is used for the renovation of crumbling and damaged concrete shafts; it utilises composite materials and can be used at any time of the year.

Man mit beigen Auszug, Blumen und Mikrophon auf dem Podium

One process, two solutions

The LXP Group produces bioplastics out of organic residual materials. In addition, the organic components are separated from the plastic residues in household waste. This approach received the Sustainability Award from Economic Development Agency Brandenburg.

What about the empty bottle?

Trevira produces textile yarns from recycled PET that do not differ from newly produced yarns in terms of their appearance and quality. Watch the video to find out more about the plant in Guben and the production of textile yarns from recycled materials.
