An initiative for more sustainability and climate protection
Efficient use of resources, saving energy, the reduction of CO 2 emissions until carbon neutrality is achieved – the initiative started by Messe Düsseldorf rewards environmentally responsible action. Support is offered to exhibiting companies which feel a duty to protect the environment.
The path to carbon neutrality Exhibitors who have been awarded the ecoMetals logo will offer visitors a look at innovations that could shape the future: products, processes and technologies in harmony with nature. Our ecoMetals Trails tour guides will take you to the booths.
Discover new ways in value creation: The pillars of ecoMetals.
ecoMetals is dedicated to three areas of sustainability – with trendsetting answers, machines and products along the value creation chain.
How can raw materials be extracted in a more resourcefriendly manner and processed more efficiently? What is the trend in material recycling from metal to plastic? What alternative raw materials are being used?
Production & Processes
In what way can better energy savings be achieved in production and processes? What does optimised energy controlling look like? How are emissions reduced and the climate-friendly use of renewable energies systematically controlled?
Which new technologies, machines and plants will improve the energy and CO2 balance? How do digital and industrial innovations contribute to a more optimal ecological fingerprint?
Guided tours to the sustainable experts: ecoMetals Trails.
And this is how you meet the pace-setters of responsibility. VALVE WORLD EXPO select the exhibitors of sustainable progress according to defined criteria. Daily, free guided tours – the so-called ecoMetals Trails – lead you to these pioneers.
Breaking into Decarbonisation The energy needs of the metalworking industry are intense. More, a large part of production is still dependant on the use of coal for chemical and physical reasons, and therefore on emissions of CO 2 . But the be-all or end-all of the metal industries hinges on the fastest possible, and successful, methods of decarbonisation.
Alternative energies like LNG or liquid hydro- gen are gaining more steam and currently experiencing a massive boom. However, they both pose special challenges, for example concerning the necessary fittings. Manufacturers of industrial fittings and valves are rising to the occasion. The ecoMetals Trails show pathways that lead to transformation.
New Technology - new Processes How „green“ is the production of industrial fittings and valves? Reducing and avoiding CO 2 by increasing the use of renewable energy and hydrogen instead of coal will lead the VALVE WORLD EXPO on a green path towards a carbon neutral future. In Düsseldorf, you will encounter innovative responsibility strategies and engage in inspiring conversations with experts on your level.
