Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy (ATB)
The Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy as a nationally and internationally acting institute is researching at the interface of biological and technical systems.
Our research is aimed at sustainable intensification. We analyze, model and evaluate bio-economic production systems. We develop and integrate new technologies and management strategies for a knowledge-based, site-specific production of biomass, and its use for food, as biobased materials and fuels - from basic research to application.
Thus we are contributing to food security, animal welfare, the holistic use of biomass, and to protect the climate and environment. [more]
Research is organized within three programs reflecting the interdisciplinary nature and the systemic approach of our research:
26. April 2018: Das ATB hatte Mädchen und Jungen zum Girls' bzw. Boys' Day eingeladen. Mit großem Interesse und viel Spaß nutzten die Kinder die Gelegenheit, erste Eindrucke in nicht ganz rollentypischen Berufsfeldern zu sammeln.
The book, co-edited by ATB scientist Christiane Herrmann, reviews recent trends and developments in the area of microbial energy conversion technologies with particular attention to bioreactors.
March 23, 2018: PhD and Master students from Sweden, Greece, Malta, Germany, and Spain got together at ATB for a training that combined theory with practice.
March 21, 2018: Craftsmen, contractors, planners and representatives of the ATB's funding bodies together with about 200 ATB staff members celebrated the topping-out ceremony for the Center for Technology and Knowledge Transfer on the grounds of the...
1. März 2018: Vom 26. bis 28. Februar fand in Berlin die internationale BonaRes-Konferenz statt. Rund 300 Bodenforscher folgten der Einladung des Netzwerks, um sich über neueste Erkenntnisse zum Thema Boden auszutauschen.
