Research and development

At ricion, in-house research and development is part of our DNA and a core component of our business model! We secure a know-how advantage through the continuous further development and optimisation of our processes and products as well as through new developments. This gives our customers and co-operation partners a unique selling point in all our business areas and thus a competitive advantage over our competitors.

In addition to our own R&D work, we offer R&D services for third parties (e.g. project studies, product development).

ricion is also an ideal collaborative research partner for universities and institutes thanks to its knowledge advantage and application expertise. In this context, we are constantly expanding our R&D collaborations with renowned scientific partners such as the Fraunhofer Group.

Our research and development currently takes place mainly in the existing demonstration and production facility at Hengstbacherhof, but this is now “bursting at the seams”. We are therefore planning the expansion and construction of a technical centre at Hengstbacherhof with a biology and soil laboratory, test facilities and production expansion for our bioconcentrate. To this end, we are planning to build a multifunctional hall on two levels, which will provide us with more space for these work and production areas.
