The Value Creation Partnership of Chemie-Cluster Bayern

With their chemical materials and processes know-how, the 260 members of the Chemie-Cluster Bayern (The Chemistry Cluster of Bavaria) provide numerous opportunities to respond to current industrial issues. Particularly in the fields of mobility, consumer goods and heavy industry, many urgent technological requirements from system integrators could be addressed with chemical solutions. It is only the “gap” between chemical suppliers and industrial OEMs in the value creation chain which prevents the efficient development of such "hidden markets".
In the "Value Creation Partnership – solving today’s problems", chemical companies and universities volunteer as innovation partners for companies from other industries. Through the joint discussion of current issues, the Cluster’s members can take advantage of a service function for industrial user segments, especially for those who are not closely involved in chemical supply chains. The aim of this dialogue is to create added value through chemical product enhancements - as new opportunities are created for both chemical suppliers and industrial users.

The Initiative

The label “Value Creation Partnership” first and foremost stands for a confidential, highly efficient, worldwide industrial network. Its partners are committed to a defined process in order to advance technology intensive cooperation on the basis of IP protection and strict market rules.

Chemical Material and Process Know-how for Aerospace

Chemical products offer many application opportunities in the aerospace industry. The Chemie-Cluster’s previously initiated projects with target industries are equally varied. Antimicrobial surfaces for the interiors of aircraft, new methods for chrome-free corrosion protection, design options for the cabin of the future, as well as electrode materials for next-generation batteries can all be found on the aviation industry’s wish list. Yet in this area, the chemical industry has already developed many solutions that can help transform the aviation industry’s wish list into products. We are here to support you with this exchange - between chemistry (very early in the value chain) and aerospace (late in the value chain). We invite to discuss your technology portfolio or technology needs with us in the context of “Chemistry Meets ...”.


Chemistry in Shipbuilding: New security systems, reduced operating costs

Chemical products are used in many aspects of shipbuilding. Chemie-Cluster Bayern has already initiated projects with this target sector. New coatings for the prevention of algae growth on ships, self-healing as well as electrode materials for next-generation batteries have all found applications. The large gap in the value creation chain between the chemical industry and system integrators means many potential chemical solutions are left unseen. In order to support a dialogue between the chemical industry (very early in the value chain) and shipbuilding (late in the value chain), we invite you to discuss your technology portfolio or technology needs with us in the context of “Chemistry Meets ...”.


Chemistry’s contribution to the efficient and clean extraction of raw materials

The provision and safeguarding of our raw materials is one of the key challenges of our time. Chemistry not only requires raw materials - it also provides the key innovations for sustainable and modern extraction and processing of important natural resources. Chemistry can offer appropriate solutions not only for the provision of high-performance chemicals which can be used as flotation agents for the efficient extraction of ores and minerals , but also for additives for the processing of mineral ores and the special equipment and environmental technologies required for the often difficult conditions in the extraction of raw materials. In a time of a growing global 'hunger for raw materials', chemical developments are fundamental to ensure an environmentally sound and at the same time, economical, raw material extraction.
