Turning waste heat into electricity
Thermoelectric generators (TEGs) convert heat into electrical energy and thus enable the utilization of waste heat, for example from industrial processes. To leverage the major potential of this technology for thermal energy recovery, Creavis has developed an innovative manufacturing process for these generators.

As sweet as sugar, but with only half the calories
Isomalt is used as a sugar substitute in confectionary such as candies or chewing gum and, as a low-calorie sweetener, is also suitable for diabetics.

Artificial photosythesis: a contribution to the energy transition
For some years now, Creavis researchers have been working on the idea of using bacteria to produce specialty chemicals by fermentation from syngas, which is a mixture consisting mainly of carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen (H2).
