Carbon Discovery Trail officially opened!

The time has come – the Carbon Discovery Trail has opened!

The “Carbon Knowledge Journey” was ceremoniously unveiled by Prof. Klaus-Dieter Barbknecht, District Administrator Matthias Damm, Mayor Sven Krüger and Prof. Bernd Meyer.

We are pleased that so many interested parties accepted the invitation to yesterday’s opening despite all the current conditions and bad weather forecasts. We had a wonderful event with the best company and sunshine. Maybe you followed it on the live stream?

We look forward to many curious visitors, young and old!

Opening Carbon Discovery Trail – June 18. 2020

What do smartphones, T-shirts and pencils have in common? They contain carbon!

The newly created Carbon Discovery Trail on our institute grounds explains this unique element and illustrates its influence on our life, our prosperity and the environment.

With the help of interactive boards, the tour around the IEC also shows how “green” fuels can be produced in the future or new products can be obtained from waste, and at the same time presents the large-scale test facilities in which the new technologies are researched.

At the opening with a festive unveiling on June 18, 2020 (10:00 a.m.) you have the opportunity to be part of the live stream. The trail is then open to all guests from 1:00 p.m. and can be visited daily from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

How much does it cost? – Nothing. Just drop by!
