RIG-EN is an Italian NEWCO, whose focus is to exploit the thermo-chemical conversion of biomass, used tires and electronic and electrical waste (WEEE). In order to do this, RIG-EN has developed with Fraunhofer UMSICHT and its management a path to exploit TCR® technology exclusively through the acquisition of concessions on already patented products and on future patents.
Fraunhofer INSTITUTE supports sustainable economies, eco-friendly technologies and innovative approaches and is the largest applied research organization in Europe. It is currently represented in the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region by the Fraunhofer UMSICHT Sulzbach – Rosemberg branch under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Andreas Hornung, a world leader scientist in waste conversion technologies.
The sole mission of RIG-EN is exploit the TCR® technology worldwide, engineer the process, preserve its production and speed up its diffusion.
C.N.R. (Italian National Research Council) supervise and verify the effectiveness and efficiency of TCR® technology.
