POWTECH 2022: Mix of innovation and dialogue

The mix of numerous innovations and expert-to-expert dialogue makes POWTECH the networking and knowledge platform for process technicians and engineers. Decision-makers and buyers will find competent advice here for their investment decisions. From 27 to 29 September 2022, trade visitors will experience the latest equipment and systems for mechanical processes for the processing, analysis and handling of powder, granulate and bulk solids in four halls, including the state-of-the-art Hall 3A. This year's trade fair duo, POWTECH and FACHPACK, expects over 1,600 exhibitors from Europe - around 500 of whom will be exhibiting at POWTECH in the field of mechanical processing technology and analysis. Both trade fairs bring together the entire value chain from process to technology to packaging. The respective ticket is valid for both trade fairs.

POWTECH brings together the global innovations for mechanical processing technology as well as for the analysis and handling of powders, granulates and bulk solids. Plant planners and operators from almost all industries, including food and feed, chemicals and pharmaceuticals, construction, recycling and ceramics, come together to update their knowledge, examine state-of-the-art process technology and prepare and make investment decisions. Trade visitors experience three days of high-quality technology live in action, inspiration and exchange at eye level, and a varied supporting programme.

"POWTECH has always been the exhibition where process engineers and production managers from every industry have found very concrete solutions to their requirements and also their problems," says Heike Slotta, Executive Director NürnbergMesse. "When networking on the stands, but also through the specialist forums, where presentations on current issues in the industry take place on an ongoing basis and leading manufacturers and users share compact best practices."

This year, visitors to Europe's leading trade fair exclusively for powder, granulate and bulk solids technologies will also benefit from synergies created with the simultaneous staging of FACHPACK, trade fair for packaging, technology and processing. With one trade fair ticket, visitors gain access to both events and the expected more than 1,600 exhibitors.

Shaping the future together

Whether mixing, crushing, agglomerating or separating material that has a powdery or lumpy aggregate state in the course of the manufacturing process - the systems and machines are decisive for the production processes of many industries. In dialogue with visitors and exhibitors, future topics of modern production will be discussed in the open atmosphere of POWTECH in four halls, including important sustainability topics such as resource efficiency, recycling or CO2-neutral production, but also topics relating to the working world of tomorrow and attracting skilled workers and talent.

Professional programme for trade visitors

In lectures, seminars, live demonstrations, guided tours and special shows, powder and bulk solids professionals from every sector will receive useful practical knowledge from top-class speakers. Bulk solids practitioners meet in the Expert Forum "stagetalks". Here, for example, the focus will be on innovative processes for modern battery and energy storage production. In the food sector, one topic will be protein shifting in the drying of vegetable protein sources. For users from the pharmaceutical industry, the Pharma.Manufacturing.Excellence forum will offer inspiration on the subjects of pharmaceutical processing and pharmaceutical packaging.

The special show “Dust recognises boundaries – free trade doesn’t” by the VDMA Group Air Purification and Drying Technology shows how the air in production facilities can be kept clean. The topic of explosion protection will not be neglected either. In the outdoor area of POWTECH there will be daily controlled live demonstrations on explosion protection - including spectacular bang and fire effects. At the joint stand "Innovation made in Germany", national start-ups and young companies will show interesting innovations in the industry.
