Social commitment is an integral part of our corporate culture.


Youth talents in the "KEV" association

DEFOTEC has been supporting the junior work of the „Krefelder EV 1981 e.V.“ for some years now and thus the youngsters of the ice hockey club "Krefelder Penguine".

Since ice hockey is a cost-intensive sport, DEFOTEC participates with subsidies in the high-priced equipment. This not only benefits the club, but also primarily the young athletes, who will be able to play ice hockey.

The junior work of the "KEV" has been training excellent young ice hockey players for many years and represents an important pillar of young sports on the Lower Rhine.
We are convinced that sport is an important link within society and an essential part of our culture. We are therefore delighted to be a long-standing sponsor of the junior work of the "Krefelder EV 1981 e.V.".

Research project in cooperation with the Munich University of Applied Sciences

A cooperation project in the field of research and development for DEFOTEC is funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. The so-called "ZIM" (Zentrales Innovationsprogramm Mittelstand) provides funding for companies to support the realisation of good ideas.

Within the project, the project partners Defotec Entschäumer Vertriebs GmbH as industrial partner and the University of Applied Sciences Munich (University of Applied Sciences, Faculty of Process Engineering, Paper and Packaging) as research partner work together.

DEFOTEC is supported by funding measures for the development of innovative products, processes and technical services. The Federal Ministry bears certain costs, such as the personnel costs of all those involved in the project.

In the field of "Process Engineering Paper and Biofibres", students from the Munich University of Applied Sciences are working together with DEFOTEC on the project "Resource-conserving System Optimisation in Recycled Paper Converting Paper Mills".
The aim of the project is to develop a new process for significantly improving the water quality in the entire stock preparation of recycling paper mills.

Synergies are used efficiently during the research project. DEFOTEC hopes to build up networks and relationships in the long term in addition to result-oriented work - stimulated by interactive exchange.
