Environmental protection

Dear readers

IFAT 2024 will take place in Munich from 13 to 17 May. In addition to the numerous exhibitors presenting their innovative environmental technologies, trade visitors can expect an extensive programme of panel discussions, specialist presentations, guided trade fair tours and live demonstrations during the world‘s leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management. And from p. 6 of this issue, you can look forward to our trade fair SPECIAL – a preview of various trade fair highlights.


In addition to reducing operating costs and saving natural gas in times of increasingly scarce resources, environmental protection was also one of the main reasons for the two-stage conversion of a grinding plant to enable waste heat recovery at the Merdingen plant of Hans G. Hauri KG Mineralstoffe. Read the technical article starting on p. 64.


The report from p. 54 on „Belt cleaning systems facilitate the transformation of waste incineration slag into construction aggregates“ looks at another success story of the circular economy. Global standards for the maintenance of industrial plants to optimise operating results are the focus of the interview from p. 60.


We wish you exciting encounters and interesting impulses during IFAT and hope you enjoy reading this issue.
