Innovation Laboratory Digitalization (INNODIG)

An innovation laboratory for digitalisation (INNODIG) is being set up at the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld of the Trier University of Applied Sciences with the help of funding from the Carl-Zeiss-Stiftung. In this new laboratory, the interdisciplinary cooperation of different departments of the university among each other, with regional partners as well as with schools will be promoted. Under the motto "Learning and Transfer by Making", applications from industry 4.0, the Internet of Things and machine learning will be developed, tested and analysed with the help of 3D printing and 3D scanning.

The laboratory illustrates in theory and practice how people, machines, plants, logistics and products communicate and cooperate with each other. The first application is a bioreactor in which cyanobacteria are cultivated with minimal water requirements. This is achieved in particular by introducing the required amount of water into the reactor in mist form.

The reactor itself is built using additive manufacturing and the growth process is simulated in a parallel digital twin. Measured values from the test operation flow into the simulations and serve to optimize the reactor.
