Success Stories


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.


Natural cleaning power
With RHEANCE® One the Personal Care Business Line at Evonik has launched the first of its glycolipid products, opening up a new dimension in gentle yet effective skin and hair cleansing.

organophilic nanofiltration

Efficient recovery
Many industrial processes use organic solvents, which have to be recovered at a later point in time. This recovery is accomplished primarily through thermal separation methods, which require a lot of energy, usually in the form of heat. An energy-efficient, resource-efficient alternative is provided by organophilic nanofiltration.

Life Cycle Management

Viewing products and processes as a whole
Sustainability is one of the most important criteria that Evonik considers when developing new products and solutions.. For this reason, Evonik established a Life Cycle Management (LCM) team in 2009 to support research units, operations, and Group headquarters with life cycle assessments. 


Pharmaceutical amino acids from the bioreac
That Evonik is one of the world’s leading suppliers of amino acids for various markets and applications is also undoubtedly due to the work of researchers at Creavis.
