Applied research

Why research?

In order to maintain the technological edge IEG continuously conducts R&D programmes to add new solutions and to continuously improve and optimize our range of sustainable technologies  “powered by IEG-GCW”

The main focus lies on applied research in the environmental sector. IEG sees itself as a link between the corporate sector and the research community. Our close ties and our focus to employ and teach students from universties, gives a access to the  latest developments  in environmental research.


We are able to bridge the gap and create working prototypes and marketable solutions from lab results. We understand the unique requirements that come with funding of these projects and are flexible enough to accomodate these special requests.

ELECTRA Research Project

The ELECTRA research project

The ELECTRA project is a 4-year Research Innovation Action consisting of one EC- funded consortium working closely together with a NSFC (Natural Science Foundation of China)-funded Chinese consortium.

The ELECTRA research project

The ELECTRA consortium aims to jointly develop and test highly innovative bio-electrochemical systems-based remediation biotechnologies at laboratory scale in environmentally relevant conditions and bring the four most efficient technologies to the field in both China and Europe.
