These updates are republished press releases and communications from members of the Science|Business Network

Safety in transition - this is the title of the new Annual Report 2021/22 of the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM), which is now available for download.

On 144 generously illustrated pages, it highlights the work of BAM and underlines its importance as a scientific-technical institution, especially with regard to the targeted climate neutrality of Germany, the accelerated expansion of renewable energies and successful decarbonisation.

How can a hydrogen economy be built up quickly while creating confidence in the safety of the technology? How can CO2 be saved as early as the construction of gigantic offshore wind turbines? And how can facial recognition be used to determine the age of lithium batteries?

The 18 articles of the BAM Report 2021/22 are dedicated to these and other future questions concerning climate protection and sustainability. Further topics: Sodium as a sustainable battery material, climate protection by preventing forest fires, CO2 savings by recycling steelworks slags, the additive manufacturing of safety-relevant components, the toxicity of micro- and nanoplastics.

With its approximately 1,600 employees, BAM, a departmental research institution of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection, makes an important contribution to safety in technology and chemistry.

We will be happy to put you in touch with competent interview partners from our company if you are planning a contribution on one or other of these topics.
