After a construction period of almost two years, the new Fraunhofer Center for Chemical-Biotechnological Processes (CBP) in Leuna was recently officially opened by the Chancellor of Germany, Dr Angela Merkel. 

The main aim of the CBP is to transition innovative biotechnological and chemical processes to industrial-scale production, thus enabling companies to manufacture basic chemical products from regenerative raw materials.

Linde affiliate Linde Engineering Dresden GmbH (LEDD) was responsible for engineering the process units, the supporting infrastructure and necessary media and utilities.

"The CBP is an important milestone on the journey to advance green technologies. This has given us the chance to make a key contribution to a project that is highly challenging from both a technical and organisational perspective,"​ states Professor Dr Aldo Belloni, Member of the Executive Board of Linde AG.
