How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

- I give lectures for the module "Circular Economy inspired by Cradle to Cradle". I am working in a research project CirQuality OWL. In which we plan to enabel companies to tap into the power of circular economy to secure the business location OWL (https://www.cirqualityowl.de/).
In a world with growing demand for resources and a worsening climate crisis, it is imperative to research and put into practice more sustainable and regenerative products and processes. Especially in the energy sector, more sustainable systems that are recyclable, repairable and remanufacturable are needed. One promising technology is dye-sensitize...
In times of climate change and increasing resource scarcity, the importance of sustainable renewable energy technologies is increasing. However, the photovoltaic (PV) industry is characterised by linear economy structures, energy-intensive production, downcycling and little sustainability. One starting point for sustainable technologies is offered...
Resources are becoming more expensive and less accessible, for instance construction wood or semiconductors. In addition, climate change requires the conversion of the energy system to 100% renewable energy. Therefore, we need resources to prevent the climate crisis from worsening, but at the same time, we are suffering from a worsening resource cr...
The effects of climate change are becoming increasingly clear, and the urgency of solving the energy and resource crisis has been recognized by politicians and society. One of the most important solutions is sustainable energy technologies. The problem with the state of the art, however, is that production is energy-intensive and non-recyclable was...
In times of climate change and dwindling fossil resources, the need for sustainable renewable energy technologies gains importance, increasingly fast. However, the state of the art technologies are energy intensive in their production, like monocrystalline photovoltaic, or even consist of not recyclable composite material, in the case of wind turbi...
With a growing world population and the concentration of citizens in big cities new methods of agriculture are required. Vertical farming attracts more attention in mending these growing problems. To enable a widespread use of low-cost hydroponic systems this study investigates minimal requirements for plants (different herbs and vegetables) in suc...
Smart nanotextiles are an enabler for a variety of technological advances—industry 4.0, the Internet of things or a more sustainable fashion industry, for instance. The market for nanomaterials is expected to grow from US$5.1 billion in 2019 to US$14.8 billion by 2024. Due to the massive and ubiquitous use of nanomaterials, humans come in close con...
Putting renewable energy to good use is necessary to deal with one of the greatest challenges of our time, namely, climate change. One problem, however, is that the technology we are using today turns into toxic waste at the end of its useful life, which in particular concerns the blades of wind turbines. We investigated how the ideas of a circular...
Reducing the collision risk for birds and bats at wind turbines is a technologically demanding task. We have surveyed state-of-the-art products and research for bird and bat detection as well as suitable deterrents. To frame this topic, we look at the stakeholders involved and their requirements to be satisfied when using detecting and deterring te...
