ECHELON is granted funding by the Carl Zeiss Foundation!

We are pleased to announce that the Carl Zeiss Foundation just granted funding to ECHELON, a project led by Prof. Siegfried Waldvogel. At the core of ECHELON is the idea to convert biomass to high-grade chemicals useful for the pharmaceutical or paper industry, for example, through an environmentally friendly process. To have a full understanding of this process at all levels (i.e., experimental and theoretical), researchers will combine quantum chemistry with multiscale modeling, therefore strengthening the connection between the teams of SusUnnoScience and M3ODEL, two of the top-level research areas of JGU.
