ceramitec with Double Emphasis on Energy Efficiency

The key topics at ceramitec 2024 in Munich/Germany will be the decarbonization of industrial processes, the circular economy for by-products and waste products, the role of the ceramics industry in energy generation and storage as a user and a provider, with the focus on hydrogen technology and the digitalization of the industry’s own processes. Exhibitors and research institutes will also be presenting numerous industrial applications in which technical ceramics make an essential contribution to success with innovative materials and processes. That applies especially to additive manufacturing and powder metallurgy.

Processes and products are changing due to climate change and cost increases. The issues of sustainability and energy efficiency are right at the top of the agenda in all parts of the ceramics industry and its target markets. Raw material suppliers, manufacturers, technology providers, and users from all over the world will be discussing energy-efficient solutions at ceramitec 2024. This year, the leading international trade fair will therefore be even more of a platform for innovative materials, technologies and processes.

Rising prices for fossil fuels are hitting the energy-intensive heavy clay industry the hardest. In Halls A4 and A5, manufacturers and technology providers will focus specifically on the topic of decarbonization. Exhibitors and speakers will address, among other things, the use of alternative energies such as hydrogen, and the electrification of production processes. The industry will also discuss how energy-efficient systems and processes can save conventional energy, focusing, for example, on digitally controlled production processes or refractory materials in furnaces for more energy-efficient processes.

Light and yet robust, stable and flexible—exhibitors and speakers in Hall A6 will demonstrate in all their variations how individual and efficient products from the field of technical ceramics are. Research institutes, technology providers, and manufacturers of new materials, processes and systems for ceramic materials are creating a veritable treasure trove of solutions, with an emphasis on additive manufacturing, 3D printing, and powder metallurgy. New materials will be presented in applications ranging from wastewater filters to dentistry.

Additive manufacturing and 3D printing are proving themselves this year especially with innovative solutions. Exhibitors such as Lithoz, Rauschert, and Ceramet are showcasing ceramic 3D printing in analytical, environmental, and medical applications. Gas distribution rings for semiconductors from Alumina and Qsil with components for sensor technology illustrate the role of ceramic components in the megatrend of digitalization. High-performance materials via multi-material 3D printing, wear-optimized composite ceramics, or transparent ceramics for optical applications open up new worlds for users.
