Fraunhofer-Center for High Temperature Materials and Design HTL

High Temperatures
Efficient Solutions

The HTL designs energy-efficient thermal processes and thus contributes to sustainable technological progress in society. It develops high-temperature materials, high-temperature components and high-temperature measurement methods and thus optimises thermal processes.

The HTL works with systematic methods at a high scientific/technical level. The primary goal is to implement its developments in industry.


Cooperation and Current Projects

The HTL offers various forms of cooperation in research and development. If you have any questions about cooperation and funding opportunities, we would be happy to hear from you.
