From granulate to implant:

Evonik develops polymers with targeted application properties. Manufacturers of medical devices use these to produce implants such as screws.


Evonik’s eleventh Project House:

In the Medical Devices Project House in Birmingham (Alabama, USA) more than 20 Evonik employees research new system solutions for medical devices, particularly for applications in implant technology. Project houses are research facilities with a deliberately limited lifespan. They are part of Creavis, Evonik’s strategic innovation unit.
