Visit in the southeast

In June the editorial board took the opportunity to visit one of the most modern dry-mix mortar plants, which was commissioned one year ago. This was not just around the corner, but in Roman, in the Northeast of Romania. Already when travelling there, we met both very traditional ways of life and highly advanced technology. In the factory itself it was easy to make out the pride in such a modern workplace as well as the excellent maintenance of the plants. Please read a comprehensive article on this visit from page 58.

Certainly someone or other have already heard that water could run short in the future. What about the availability of fresh and process water in the mining sector - not only today, but also in the future decade? The article by Dr. Joachim Harder comprises a detailed analysis on this topic from page 76.

Probably a lot of our readers will look forward to their coming visit to Nuremberg. A whole string of companies permit us to have a look at the latest developments in advance, which they will present at the Powtech 2014 (from page 24).

We wish you informative and captivating hours!

Dr. Petra Strunk
