First-hand information!

Key topics of the 2023 fair


The perennial hot topic in industrial production is undisputedly digitalization. Disrupted supply chains, acute raw material bottlenecks, skyrocketing energy prices and, last but not least, the shortage of skilled workers are forcing companies in the process industry to drive forward the digitalisation of their business processes even faster and to exploit the opportunities and possibilities of Industry 4.0, IoT, Cloud & Co. At the SOLIDS, RECYCLING-TECHNIK and PUMPS & VALVES trade fairs in Dortmund in spring 2023, visitors can get an overview of current developments that promise real added value.


Sustainability is also a key issue for companies. That is why SOLIDS, RECYCLING TECHNOLOGY and PUMPS & VALVES has proclaimed sustainability as one of the key themes of the 2023 event. In sustainable production, social responsibility, economic performance and environmental protection are inseparable. In all three exhibition areas, the participating companies will be showing innovative equipment, machinery and processes that help to meet the demand for more sustainability in production.

Process Optimization

Continuously improving processes is one of the central tasks of a company in the 21st century in order to remain competitive. In view of the current challenges posed by multiple crises, process optimization is becoming even more important. Companies are rewarded with more efficiency and effectiveness and thus greater profitability. Whether recycling, bulk materials or pumps and fittings, the exhibitors at SOLIDS, RECYCLING-TECHNIK and PUMPS & VALVES have intelligent solutions in their luggage that shorten throughput times, increase capacity utilisation, improve quality and reduce the use of resources.

Synergien der Schüttgut- und Recycling-Technik-Branchen
Die beiden Industrien haben wesentliche Merkmale gemeinsam: Materialströme und -verarbeitung. Und damit entstehen zahlreiche Synergien. Beispielsweise werden Schüttgut-Technologien in Recyclingprozessen eingesetzt, um den Transport wiederverwertbarer Materialien zu optimieren. Gleichzeitig finden Recycling-Technologien mit ihren innovativen Sortier- und Aufbereitungsverfahren ihren Einsatz in Schüttgutprozessen wieder, um eine optimale Ausbeute wertvoller Ressourcen zu erzielen. Die enge Verbindung beider Branchen ermöglicht ressourcenschonende Lösungen, erhöhte Effizienz und einen nachhaltigen Ansatz in der Materialverarbeitung.
