BioMat TGU (Transfer- und Gründerunternehmung)@TTI GmbH was founded by Prof. Dr.-Ing Hanaa Dahy in 2022, based on the concept of BioMat@Stuttgart (2016) at the University of Stuttgart and BioMat@Copenhagen (2022) at the Aalborg University.
Our goal at BioMat is to explore innovative solutions for future sustainable Architecture. The design philosophy of BioMat sees material properties as a design tool, merging the fields of Material Research, Architectural Design, and Digital Fabrication to create feasible sustainable applications for the built environment.
Jun.-Prof. Hanaa Dahy gave a lecture entitled “Biocomposites for Architecture Between Design and Fabrication – Current and Future Visions” on December 7, 2017 at the BCC Biocomposites Conference Cologne, the largest international conference on Biocomposites applications in industry.

As part of the Material and Structure Course (MML II – Material Matter Lab) directed by Jun.-Prof. Hanaa Dahy, architects and students from CTU Czech Technical University Prague joined our students from the Bachelors and Masters program in architecture at the University of Stuttgart and 3rd semester ITECH students for a workshop in cooperation with IFB (Institute for Aircraft Design – University of Stuttgart).
Jun.-Prof. Hanaa Dahy published an article about the Efficient Fabrication of Sustainable Building Products from Annually Generated Non-wood Cellulosic Fibres and Bioplastics with Improved Flammability Resistance in the journal Waste and Biomass Valorization.
BioPro Baden-Württemberg published an article on the development of innovative, ecological construction materials and methods at the University of Stuttgart including an interview with Jun.-Prof. Hanaa Dahy on its platform Bioeconomy BW which focuses on projects in green economy and products from biological resources.
