Welcome to the DFIU
Emeritus: Prof. em. Dr. rer. nat. Otto Rentz
The DFIU was established in 1991 as a research institution with the mandate to sustain the widespread wish of France and Germany for strengthening the cross-border scientific cooperation in the field of environmental research.
The research objectives are to develop in German-French interdisciplinary teams joint solutions to common problems. These activities extend e.g. to air, waste and energy. In addition questions of recycling management, floor space management and material flow management are considered.
