Better Forecasting For Solar And Wind Power Generation

The sun does not shine and the wind does not blow with constant intensity. This is a problem for the power grid, where the power supply must always match the power demand. In the EWeLiNE project, Fraunhofer and the German Weather Service have been working to develop better models for forecasting the generation of renewable electricity. Now they have launched a platform for transmission system operators to test the new models live.

IFAT 2016: Fertilizer from wastewater

Fraunhofer researchers have developed a market-ready system that can be used to obtain fertilizer from wastewater for direct use in agriculture. A licensee is already marketing this patented technology in North America and the process itself is particularly eco-friendly. The scientists showcase it on IFAT, world‘s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management from May 30 to June 3, 2016 in Munich (hall A5, booth 217/316).

Developing improved paints and varnishes more quickly

Developing wall paints and varnishes presents a big challenge for manufacturers. One reason is that samples merely enable them to estimate what the dispersion behavior in the reaction container will be. By teaming up with PDW Analytics GmbH, Fraunhofer researchers are now for the first time able to monitor the production of paints, varnishes and adhesives continuously and in real time – allowing them to design more efficient processes.
