The Ceramic Composites is an association of companies and research institutions in the field of ceramic matrix composites.
Our vision for 2030
Ceramic matrix composites will find widespread application as a key component for sustainable production technology in 2030. This will strengthen the competitiveness of Germany as a high-tech location.
We promote the industrial use of ceramic matrix composites in mechanical and plant engineering, mobility and the energy industry and support sustainable use. To achieve this goal, we help our members in the targeted acquisition of national projects, the presentation of their capabilities at events and trade fairs, materials marketing and through specific educational offers.
Read more about our goals and our commitment to the development and dissemination of ceramic matrix composites in our position paper. You can read about the potential that ceramic matrix composites already have for the energy transition here (in German).
Research projects of the Ceramic Composites
There are currently a number of research projects underway that Ceramic Composites has initiated. A brief summary of all ongoing projects is given annually at the Project Forum: The presentations on our projects can be found here.
