In 2011 she started a company together with a partner, whose main focus was developing a baby diaper, which is designed for the circular economy from the beginning to the end – including production, use and disposal concepts.

- Environmentally sound recycling and use of organic waste
- Project conception and coordination including financial planning and funding acquisition
- Complex data analysis (e.g. from anaerobic digestion plants)

- National and international knowledge transfer
"In my opinion the challenges of our time can not be solved as well by means of specialization as they could through the cooperation between the specialists in different industries and branches. The whole picture has to work; otherwise the best technologies don’t stand a chance on the market."
