Start of Trip to Leuna: Visit of Fraunhofer Institute - Chemical-Biological-Process-Center (CBP)

The Fraunhofer Center for Chemical-Biotechnological Processes CBP in Leuna, is intended to close the gap between the lab and industrial implementation. By making infrastructure and plants (pilot scale and miniplant) available, the center will make it possible for cooperation partners from research and industry to develop and scale-up biotechnological and chemical processes, allowing them to utilize renewable raw materials on an industrial scale. The core focus of the Fraunhofer CBP's activities are the sustainability of processes along the entire value chain involved in creating products based on renewable resources. The goal is to achieve a cascading material-energetic utilization of as many biomass plants components as possible, on the lines of a biorefinery.

Leipzig has always been a trade city, situated during the time of the Holy Roman Empire at the intersection of two important trade routes. At one time, Leipzig was one of the major European centres of learning and culture in fields such as music and publishing. After World War II, Leipzig became a major urban centre within the Communist German Democratic Republic.

Johann Sebastian Bach worked in Leipzig from 1723 to 1750, conducting the St. Thomas Church Choir, at the St. Thomas Church, the St. Nicholas Church and the Paulinerkirche. The St. Nicholas Church later played a significant role in instigating the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, through events which took place 1989 in and around it.
The Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra is one of the oldest symphony orchestras in the world. It is named after the concert hall in which it is based, the Gewandhaus. The list of music directors contains names like Felix Mendelssohn, Wilhelm Furtwängler and Kurt Masur.
