ZELLCHEMING-Expo to focus on bioeconomy

In the Science Year of bioeconomy, the sustainable use of natural resources will be a key topic at the upcoming ZELLCHEMING-Expo from 24 - 25 June 2020 in Frankfurt/Main. This topic can be experienced at the exhibition itself and will also be an integral part of the lecture program.

Bioeconomy is the topic of the Year of Science 2020 initiated by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) together with the ”Wissenschaft im Dialog“ (Science in dialogue) association. As such, it is also at the focus of this year’s exhibition. “Thinking bio-economically means knowing the cycles of nature and not only using them for the energy industry, the paper and packaging industry or fiber-based products, but also preserving them in terms of environmental and resource protection. This requires research for innovations,“ commented Petra Hanke, Managing Director of the ZELLCHEMING e.V. association. “The ZELLCHEMING-Expo offers a platform for this topic and creates first-class conditions to accompany the new path of the bioeconomy. The social trend towards a more responsible use of resources is our motivation”.

A major goal in this context is the climate-neutral production of fiber-based products. This concerns all manufacturing processes as well as their production and further processing up to the natural recycling economy.

Increase in exhibitors, especially for maintenance companies

Five months before the exhibition will open its doors, approximately 70 companies have confirmed their participation - more than at the same time last year. These include well-known industry key players e. g.  Andritz, Bellmer, Siemens and Voith, but also new exhibitors such as Metso Germany. A total of three quarters of last year‘s exhibition space has already been booked, the "Road of Maintenance" in particular once again being very popular as a presentation platform especially for maintenance companies and already almost sold out.

Further information on the event is available at Day and season tickets for visitors are also available here from the end of February.
