The partners of E4MeWi

An interdisciplinary cooperation of startups and research institutes from the chemical industry.



CreativeQuantum GmbH (project coordinator)

CreativeQuantum is specialized in the use of quantum mechanics based research and development for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry. For this purpose chemical and physical properties of substances and materials are calculated in order to determine chemical reactions and processes in detail. Innovative optimization methods are used to efficiently perform these tasks.



With INERATEC's innovative chemical reactor technology, gases can be converted on a decentralised scale into liquid energy sources or valuable chemical products. The compact reactors can be integrated into container-sized plants. INERATEC's range of services includes planning, construction, commissioning and service of the compact plants.

Research institutes


Leibniz Institut für Katalyse e. V. - Beller Group

More than 60 years of catalysis "know how" form the basis of the Leibniz Institute for Catalysis e.V. at the University of Rostock (LIKAT Rostock). Originally the only institute dedicated exclusively to catalysis, it is now one of the largest publicly funded research institutes in the field of applied catalysis in Europe. Its expertise is both methodologically and materially oriented.


Ruhr-Universität Bochum — Apfel Group

The RUB owes its success in research to the close links between the disciplines on campus, thanks to which it can react flexibly to current research questions. The Apfel group is interested in the activation of biologically and industrially relevant small molecules. Main topics are in particular the activation of CO2 and the formation of H2.



Chemiepark Bitterfeld-Wolfen GmbH

At the Chemiepark Bitterfeld-Wolfen, investors have access to a modern chemical-specific infrastructure and individual services. Closed material cycles and a network of innovative companies are among the advantages of the site. The location in the dynamic economic region Leipzig-Halle offers the proximity to competent partners from industry and science.
