Biomass and pyrolysis pilot plant

The material and energetic utilization of residual biomasses represents a research focus of the department, for whose research the department has extensive infrastructure. This includes, among other things, a continuously operated pyrolysis and activation reactor for the production of vegetable and activated carbons, as well as various processing methods for biomasses (IFBB laboratory plant, mills, pellet and briquette press).

Technical Center

Remote sensing

A research focus at the FG GNR is the remote sensing of plant characteristics in grassland and arable land. Extensive equipment is available, which allows terrestrial and drone-based remote sensing with various sensors (hyperspectral, multispectral, thermal, RGB).

Experimental Sites

Part of the scientific work of the GNR is implemented outdoors, mainly in specifically prepared field trial plots, but also in the practicing areas.

Trial plots used for research are located in Neu-Eichenberg and in Reiffenhausen.
