The countdown is running: At ZELLCHEMING-Expo, from 4 – 6 July 2017 visitors get an exclusive and up-to-date insight into future challenges and new approaches along the process chain of the pulp and paper production. Especially at the exhibition forum participants will not only be informed but also inspired by the main topic “Industry 4.0” for new development opportunities in their companies. With the keynote speech under the heading  “Good sides, bad sides – Why the paper industry also has to reinvent itself,” web journalist and TV presenter Richard Gutjahr sensitized for the future topic on the first exhibition day:

“Not even one in two represents of the paper industry believes that the digitalization, the “Internet of Things” and the “Industry 4.0” will have a profound effect on the own business. But the lessons of history tell us that especially those who feel the safest will be hardest hit by the change. The lecture will show why the step from the analog to the hyper interlinked digital age will be bigger than the invention of the book printing and why no industry will remain untouched by this change.”

Practical knowledge-transfer

Other sources of information provide the workshop “Industry 4.0“ of the ZELLCHEMING technical committee pulp and paper testing (TEST), the workshop “Technologies from TODAY for the products of TOMORROW” of the Papiertechnischen Stiftung as well as the lecture series “The VDI and its effects on the paper industry” of the ZELLCHEMING technical committee microbiology. This year, the already established Cellulose Symposium will present again the latest discoveries in the field of polysaccharide research.
