About us

EZD – location, origins and development

The European Centre for Dispersion Technologies (ECD) started its work in Selb (Upper Franconia) in January 2014. This region has the second highest industrial density in Europe. The EZD is considered a unique project in Europe, which was established by Germany's largest plastics institute, the SKZ, in close cooperation with industry and with considerable support from the Free State of Bavaria. It is a research and innovation centre with the task of supporting companies in the development and production of dispersions.

The EZD was created in an impressive joint effort. The original idea came from several companies from the local economy, including NETZSCH, Dronco and LAPP Insulators, who recognised the necessity and potential of such a facility in the Fichtelgebirge. For precisely such an industry-oriented contact point for the multitude of issues surrounding the topic of "dispersions" did not exist anywhere in Germany until then. Great support came from the Bavarian state government, which granted start-up funding of 5.2 million euros and thus enabled the rapid implementation of the project.

Since the start of operations in 2014, more than 700 industrial orders and research projects as well as more than 40 courses with over 600 participants have been carried out at the EZD. In the process, the EZD works with both regional and international customers and partners. In processing and implementing the projects, the EZD team can draw on a total of over 90 years of professional experience.
