During the first project phase of Kopernikus, four more projects were launched. Rheticus originated from P2X; PiCK, SPIKE and DisConMelter are classic satellites. This page gives you an overview of the various partner projects. Using the navigation you can directly access the subpages.
Spin-off from P2X: Rheticus
The Rheticus project is a spin-off of the Kopernikus project P2X. It uses microorganisms to convert renewable energy into alcohols. The cosmetics industry, for example, needs these alcohols to produce creams and make-up.
DisConMelter was a satellite project of of the Kopernikus project SynErgie. The aim was to design glass production in such a way that it could be operated sometimes with more and sometimes with less electricity. Depending on how much electricity is currently available.

The PiCK project is a satellite of the Kopernikus Project P2X. It uses a plasma to separate CO2 into carbon monoxide and oxygen. Carbon monoxide is an important basic material in the chemical industry.
