„The Bright World of Metals” renewed with the ecoMetals-campaign
Casting, steel production and non-ferrous metal production are an energy-intensive business. Here, environmentally friendly technologies, as presented at the trade fair quartet of GIFA, NEWCAST, METEC and THERMPROCESS 2015, can make a significant contribution to climate protection.
With the "ecoMetals" initiative, launched by Messe Düsseldorf, responsible, environmentally aware actions on the part of companies are to be promoted, with companies presenting their innovative products and processes at the trade fair for the first time. The focus is on innovations and key technologies that contribute to the environment as well as energy efficiency and efficiency of resources. In the process, topics such as maximising efficiency, reduced CO2 emissions and sustainable climate protection define the market and specify the future direction.
In addition, savings on material help to protect raw materials and resources. Here, the outlook is good for casting, for example: In casting, material is used only where it brings benefit and is necessary – an important requirement for lightweight construction. This not only helps to reduce the petrol consumption of a vehicle, but also saves raw materials, energy and CO2 when a component is manufactured.
