Who we are

RPM is a spin-off of Dresden University of Technology, founded in 2014. We are a group of innovation-driven paper technologists who believe in the future of paper. A future, however, which is not likely to come by just further improving practises and strategies which have worked so well over so many decades. The unprecedented changes and challenges the paper industry is currently confronted with are most probably here to stay. And they will – in quite some areas – require answers that are not being given yet or even paradigm shifts. It is against this background that the RPM team is dedicated to transfer existing but widely untapped experience, knowledge, research findings and promising ideas into new technologies, new products and new business strategies for the pulp and paper industry as well as related industries.

Based in Gauting, Upper Bavaria, Germany, we are part of a powerful and creative network of research providers and universities focussing on new approaches to make paper production more energy- and resource-efficient, on the identification of new application areas for lignocellulosic fibres as well as on procuring new fibre-based materials and products addressing the needs of the future.

The founders of RPM are Prof. Dr.-Ing. Harald Grossmann, Dr.-Ing. Tilo Gailat and Dr.-Ing.Toni Handke.
