The Environmental Technology Roadmap and how it relates to resource efficiency
Environmental technology is of great importance to industry in Baden-Württemberg. In order to capture the most promising future trends for this sector, the State Agency, Umwelttechnik BW, developed an Environmental Technology Roadmap in collaboration with Fraunhofer IAO (Institute for Industrial Engineering) and INEC, the Institute for Industrial Ecology, at Pforzheim University of Applied Sciences in 2017. Qualitative development trends in the lead markets air, water and circular economy were determined for the next 15 years in a multi-stage process involving expert interviews and Delphi surveys. Market segments were defined within the lead markets and the emerging trends subsequently identified. The trends were differentiated according to the time frame in which they are expected to run their course, from shortterm developments up to a 15 year span and whether they are technology or market trends. The trends can be displayed graphically and in relation to each other by means of an app.
