The sustainable strengths: Long lifetime, reduction of heat emissions through full insulation, nsulated barrel zones maximizes process stability, additional energy savings through intelligent channeling of cooling air along the barrel, energy savings through maintenance-free screw core temperature control instead of oil-based screw cooling systems, maintenance-free AC-motor for maximum efficiency across the whole processing range etc.
Technology makes the world cleaner
Making the world a good deal cleaner, conserving resources and maintaining good air and clear water - that requires state-of-the-art mechanical engineering. Around 3,300 exhibitors are demonstrating at IFAT in Munich that the technologies are ready to efficiently separate and recycle recyclable materials, clean water from plastic waste or purify polluted air. The machine manufacturers from Germany play a leading role here.
New EU legislation on waste not an example of better legislation
The standard has been raised for the waste industry across Europe with the legislation package definitively adopted on 18 April 2018.
Scoring with innovations for the environment and climate
Two VDMA member companies are among the winners of the German Innovation Prize for Climate and Environment, which is awarded every two years by the Federal Ministry for the Environment and the BDI
Mechanical engineering industry commits to ambitious climate goals
VDMA: Greenhouse gases can be reduced by 80 to 95 percent by 2050, with additional annual costs of EUR 15 billion to 30 billion - Innovations in the mechanical engineering industry will further reduce costs - State cannot act alone, nor give preferential treatment to specific technologies
