On working in research and development of new oleochemicals from renewable raw materials,
Ursula Biermann published numerous scientific papers in international refereed scientific journals.
In 1994 she received the "August – Claas – Forschungspreis“ in recognition of excellent work
on "Native Oils and Fats
– Renewable Raw Materials for the Chemical Industry – Synthesis of New Oleochemicals“.
