ECO METALS AWARD 2023
With the goal of climate neutrality by 2050 at the latest, the metal industries are facing the greatest transformation in their history. The trade journals stahl.punkt and its English-language counterpart think.steel want to accompany the industry on its way and provide new impetus for this challenge. In order to make these new ideas known to a wider public, Messe Düsseldorf, in cooperation with the metallurgical trade journals published by Vulkan Verlag, is presenting the ecoMetals Award as part of the Bright World of Metals.
The ecoMetals Award recognizes exemplary companies from the metals industry that are already on the path to transformation. Voting has already closed. The awards will be presented at Bright World of Metals.
Worthy of distinction and awards: the categories for the eco Metals Award 2023
Material- and resource-efficient production
How green and environmentally friendly are the energy-intensive companies in the metallurgy and foundry industry? How resource-efficient is production, what role do material cycles play in the value chains? Energy-saving, material- and resource-efficient production in the context of decarbonization is the focus of the ecoProcess category..
Sustainable with renewable energy
At which point in the process chain are wind and solar power used? Which technologies do companies in the metal industries use to optimize energy efficiency? Applicants in this category integrate renewable energies into production and focus on sustainable energy use in their company.
Use of innovative technologies
How can artificial intelligence and other digital technologies of Industry 4.0 be used to optimize the production process? Which new manufacturing processes complement the companies' conventional production technologies? The use of innovative technologies in the metallurgy and foundry industry is the focus of the ecoTechnology section.
