Heat and resource transition in Japanese and German industry

The efficient use of resources and the introduction of sustainable production methods are among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to which both Japan and Germany have committed themselves.

Process heat is required in many industries to generate steam for melting and drying processes, for electroplating, pasteurization or for thermal separation processes. How can these amounts of heat be provided in a carbon-neutral manner in the future? This is one of the biggest challenges for the industry in Germany as well as in Japan. In addition, resources must be used efficiently by closing material, water or heat cycles.

How are German and Japanese industrial companies planning to convert their heat supply to "net zero"? What technologies are there for supplying factories with "green" heat? Where can valuable resources be saved? How can Germany and Japan learn from the respective processes?

Experts from German and Japanese business and politics will discuss this at the 17th German-Japanese Economic Forum at HANNOVER MESSE.

The organizer is Deutsche Messe in cooperation with ECOS and the German-Japanese Business Association (DJW).


Registration of participants will start in early March.
