Research and Development



This IGF (Industrielle Gemeinschaftsforschung) project, No. 16532 BR, was initiated by the DECHEMA (Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie e. V.), Theodor Heuss-Allee 25, 60486 Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The project was funded through the AiF (Arbeitsgemeinschaft industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen) in the context of a program supporting industrial community research and development (IGF). Funding was provided by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology after a resolution of the German Bundestag.

The authors would like to express their gratitude to the following companies: Clean-Lasersysteme GmbH, Delo Industrie Klebstoffe GmbH & Co KGaA, EdgeWave GmbH, Erbslöh AG, Inpro mbH, Lohmann GmbH & Co. KG and Stepanski Engineering — companies which all generously and unselfishly supported and facilitated these studies.
