The latest issue of Heat Processing is here!
Focussing on new trends of the industry, our new issue of Heat Processing deals with topics of sustainibility and latest innovations. We are taking a closer look on hydrogen as well as the reduction of CO2 and optimization of processes.
In his Editorial, Roberto Pancaldi, CEO at Tenova concludes: "From my point of view, energy transition is a great opportunity: innovation thrives when a change is unfolding, and players able to embrace the challenge will have the chance to give a sbstantial contribution to the developing of a new economic model."
"Looking at regulations and taxes, which are already active respectively planned in the next years to achieve the sustainibility goals of the German governement and the European Comission, there is a tendency to relocate energy-intensive production in regions with lower standards", Friedrich Raether, Director at HTL, adds in his interview.
Finally, we give an overview on the latest CECOF meeting held this year.
Moreover, this issue contains several interesting reports in the field of induction technology, process control, industrial furnaces and heat treatment, which are the key topics of heat processing.
We wish you a good and inspiring read!
