POWTECH is a leading gathering for experts in powder and bulk goods technology. POWTECH 2022 will be characterized by the latest megatrends, particularly the process of transitioning to climate-neutral production within the framework of a functioning circular economy. In this context, numerous experts underline the key role played by the mechanical engineering industry in Germany and other European countries. Through its sustainable developments, it is guiding and supporting its customer segments during the period of transition, which is defined by increasingly higher production efficiency with reduced energy consumption and the shift to renewable energies.
Within this framework, manufacturers of mechanical processing technology are evolving into solution providers that are turning digital transformation into reality. As well as machines and flexible modules, they are also providing smart tools and services that help users achieve their goals, for example through the monitoring and optimization of effectiveness indicators, preventive maintenance, or by reducing the use of energy and other valuable resources. In this environment, analysis and process analytical technologies, which have played a significant role at POWTECH for many years, are also becoming even more important. In addition, the industry can demonstrate the contributions it is already capable of making to the production of energy storage systems. Because the volatility of carbon-neutral energy generation and electric mobility are going to cause demand for storage options (e.g., using batteries) to rise rapidly worldwide.
