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.
On March 12, 2018 a delegation of 23 senior IOCL managers met with VDMA members to discuss the future role of alternative fuels such Hydrogen, LNG and energy efficiency. VDMA gave an introduction on the German Energy Transition and the consequences for the maritime and petrochemical sectors. Germany’s industry is faced with various challenges connected with the decarbonization. An efficient energy transition in Germany and Europe will only work if the power, transport and heat markets will be coupled via power-to-X technologies. VDMA members offer power-to-X solutions already today.
ACHEMA from 11th to 15th of June 2018 is the leading exhibition for the manufacturers of process plants and equipment. Richard Clemens, Managing Director of VDMA Process Plant and Equipment Association is pleased „that her in Frankfurt we will once again have an opportunity to see “live” and for ourselves what German engineers have to offer when it comes to process plant and equipment. For the manufacturers of process plants and equipment ACHEMA takes place in an economically positive surrounding.
In order to achieve the ambitious, long-term energy and climate targets, the energy transition must not be reduced to a "turnaround" in the power sector only. In fact all energy sectors – power, mobility and heat – have to be coupled in an efficient way. The VDMA formulates requirements for a successful energy sector coupling in it’s VDMA Position Paper. Power-to-X process plays a key role.


The VDMA supports the Digital Oil and Gas Networking Event of the German Chambers of Commerce AHKs at the Hannover Messe.


The new „VDMA Technology Guide Oil – Gas – Petrochemistry 2017/2018“ has been published under the tigle Fossil and Renewable Ressource for sustainable Processes / Fossile und Erneuerbare Ressourcen für zukunftsfähige Prozesse.
The July issue of the VDMA Nachrichten published the article "Beverage industry - Water technology with cleanliness" in its column Focus Technology. This article dealt in depth with the foodstuff water.
In this brochure, member companies of the VDMA Water and Wastewater Technology Group provide a compendium of their range of supplies and services. The 12th edition 2016 is introduced at IFAT and is available for download.
The process plant and equipment association has published a new edition of the Product Directory Process Plant and Equipment, in which the member companies inform about their products.
