Area of research

At the Institute of Applied Microbiology (iAMB) of the RWTH Aachen University scientists work on various contributions to a circular bioeconomy. These contributions are to be seen in the context of the RWTH Aachen University goals "Meeting global challenges". Here, the focus lies on the sustainable production of valuable substances from renewable carbon sources (biomass, CO2, plastic).

With its 1,500 m2 laboratories and offices, of which more than 500 m2 are S2- and 500 m2 are S1-laboratories with latest equipment, the institute allows a multitude of projects in the field of applied microbiology. The expertise is also available for bilateral projects with industrial partners, which are already being realized in the Ferm-Factory at the iAMB in context of the “Applikationszentrum für angewandte Biotechnik (APZ)”.
