The spin-off from a research institute is highly innovative knowledge transfer from which industry and science benefit equally. This also prompted Kaspar Haller, the candidate for mayor, to drop by bfirm in the technology park.
The aspect that was particularly interesting for him was the wide range of applications for surface technology and the positive economic and ecological effects on the environment. Why? Especially in remanufacturing - i.e. the industrial reprocessing of technical components and products - there is the challenge that the old parts are contaminated with a wide variety of substances. This makes component cleaning particularly complex and cost-intensive. If efficient component cleaning and coating processes can be used at this point, then the refurbishment process of the components is more economical and remanufacturing is therefore also interesting for "new" companies in this industry.
