In June 2022, once again it will be time for the ceramitec trade fair: More than four years have passed since the last ceramitec and the anticipation of a reunion is noticeable throughout the ceramics industry. After two years of pandemic, it has become clear: video conferences, virtual meetings, online trade fairs or webinars certainly have their advantages, but will never be able to replace face-to-face exchanges and chance encounters, which simply cannot be replicated in the digital realm.
It is also a good opportunity to again get an impression of the current mood barometer in the industry and to learn what are the new challenges but also trends that move it. From representatives of the raw materials industry, to processing, kiln construction and additive manufacturing, it is clear to see: process efficiency and climate neutrality are in focus. One player that is getting more and more attention here is hydrogen. Currently, many exciting projects are already underway for the decarbonization of energy-intensive processes in refineries, steel production and for use in fuel gas furnaces, although here, of course, the selection of suitable refractory materials for this new fuel must also be considered.
With a large number of exhibitors along the entire process chain, additive manufacturing will also be represented at ceramitec this year. Here the experts agree: ceramic 3D printing continues to gain momentum and is evolving into an industrial production method that will take its place alongside established processes.
Keramische Zeitschrift and Interceram will of course be on site again in Munich. You will find us in hall C1 at stand 139. We are looking forward to your visit!
