Sustainable processes and procedures

The Research Center Sustainable Processes and Procedures (fz npv)is dedicated to the development and design as well as the production and use of products that contribute to achieving the goals of sustainable development adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015. From a technical perspective, the resources, processes and material flows used along the entire value chain are considered. At the same time, all technically and socially desirable and undesirable effects on the four dimensions of sustainable development (ecology, social affairs, economy and governance) are analysed. The aim is to demonstrate innovations in technical, organisational and social terms.
