Institute for Natural Materials Technology

Ass.Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Dr.nat.techn. Norbert Mundigler

Mission Statement

The core capabilities of the Institute for Natural Materials Technology are injection

moulding and extrusion of natural and renewable resources. Starting with the characterisation of the raw materials across their conditioning and processing up to the mechanical tests of the finished material all works are accomplished in our institute.

Vegetable fibres and biopolymers like starch and protein in non-food area serve as raw materials. Compounded with synthetic polymers they are modified to reach the specifications, and thus accomplish new sales markets for agricultural products.
