Thinking ahead – for solutions that shape the future
Thanks to its in-house research and development departments, Christof Industries places great emphasis on practical research. Our overarching goal is to be able to offer our customers even more efficient solutions through the development of innovative technologies, and thus to strengthen further our own competitive position.
Our research efforts are focussed on the field of renewable energies, waste recycling and re-use and on the optimisation of customer processes.
Universities as partners
Many broad research projects, including those supported by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy, are dedicated to researching procedures on the basis of which new technologies can be developed. We work closely with universities (e.g. TU Wien, Montan University Leoben, Johann Kepler University Linz) in particular on questions related to sustainable energy production.
With our research and development work, we want to:
- optimise and develop our own technologies
- evaluate innovative technologies and processes and test their practicality
- investigate the practical use of external technologies in particular processes
- establish and deepen knowledge networks with other research institutes
