About CCPE

Transformation to a circular plastics economy

The transformation from a linear to a circular plastics economy can only succeed with a multi-stakeholder approach. For this reason, Fraunhofer CCPE bundles competencies and infrastructures from six institutes of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and cooperates closely with partners from industry. Together, we work on systemic, technical and social innovations, focusing on the entire life cycle of plastic products.

For our clients and partners from industry and the public sector, we develop, implement and optimize processes, products and plants until they are ready for use and the market. With our internationally networked top-level research, we contribute to the success of industry and the well-being of society.
