    • The scarcity of both, fossil fuels and raw materials, along with the adverse effects on the climate
      and environment, call for the use of renewable energy and natural resources. One of the more
      favourable options is the use of renewable materials from agriculture or forestry. They can provide
      resources for either solid, liquid or gaseous fuels. Basic material can also be utilized for nonenergetic
      uses. At the Centre of Excellence for Renewable Resources in Straubing, the Bavarian
      State Government has focused all of its activities towards the field of renewable resources. The
      objective is to support applications of renewable resources by basic or applied research. This
      includes the development and testing of equipment as well as the exchange of technology and
      knowledge. Aid is also given for the emergence of new markets, evaluation of projects and for the
      execution of support programs.
      At the Centre of Excellence these goals are achieved by the cooperation of three independently
      organized facilities; the Science Centre Straubing, the Technology and Support Centre and
      C.A.R.M.E.N. e.V. Each of these three institutions has a specific purpose and the objectives are
      attained by the combined effort and collaboration.
