The Institute for Industrial Production (IIP) was formed in 1982 as an off-shoot of the Institute for Production Engineering and Labour Science and the Techno-Economy Project Group of the University of Karlsruhe (TH). Research includes primarily the techno-economic analysis and evaluation of emission reduction technologies, the development of regional/national emission reduction strategies as well as the techno-economic evaluation of production integrated waste treatment concepts. The working group "Energy Systems and Environment" of IIP focuses on systems analysis of energy problems, energy models, integration of renewables in energy supply and energy utility planning. Furthermore, the development of a efficient green power business is a central field of research of this working group.
Studies are carried out on behalf of the Economic Commission for Europe, the European Union, the Federal Ministry of Research and Technology, the Federal Environmental Agency (UBA), the State of Baden-W�rttemberg and industry. The interdisciplinary method of solving technical and economic problems is characteristic of the Institute. Since 1986 the Institute is also involved in the building-up of a French-German Institute for Environmental Research which took up its activities in 1990.
