We welcome you at the Institute for Applied Material Flow Management. As a young institute we define our tasks as analyzing material and energy flows at regional and company/ operational level, spotting/ recognizing potentials for optimisation and initiating implementation. It is our goal to enhance added value while diminishing environmental impact.

Together with partners from municipalities, ministries, companies and many other actors we would like not just to plan but to implement a sustainable development.
