Oerlikon to develop eco-friendly clean-tech solutions

Mar '08
With the realignment of its Research & Development as well as through the formation of a high-ranking staffed Scientific Advisory Board (SAB), Oerlikon is strengthening its innovative capabilities.

The goal is to detect oncoming mega trends as early as possible in order to systematically develop groundbreaking innovations.

The development of environmentally-friendly technologies (Clean Technologies) and a greater use of nanotechnology represent key research aspects in the process.

Effective immediately, the SAB, lead by Professor Werner Martienssen from the University Frankfurt am Main, shall provide consultation to CEO Dr. Uwe Krüger and Executive Vice President R&D, Dr. Andreas Widl, and keep Oerlikon linked to international cutting-edge research.

“We are now establishing the foundations needed to systemize future successes such as our thin-film solar technology,” says Dr. Uwe Krüger, CEO of Oerlikon, who himself holds a PhD in Physics.

“Perhaps in five years, we'll be able to provide clean-tech solutions that have CVD coatings and nano textile fibers as their basis, or produce photovoltaic elements from organic materials,” says Dr. Krüger.
