Welcome to EMC 2019 in Germany

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans Jacobi

EMC, the European Metallurgical Conference has developed to the most important networking business event dedicated to the non-ferrous metals industry in Europe. From the start of the conference sequence in 2001 at Friedrichshafen it was host of host of most relevant metallurgists from all countries of the world.

This year’s aim of the conference is: “Optimum utilization of resources and recycling for a sustainable solution”.

EMC 2019 will be dedicated to the continuous efforts of our industry to meet the challenges of a globalizing world by delivering important contributions to the welfare in our future. Sustainability of the non-ferrous metals industry will be duly examined in respect to its technological, ecological and economic aspects in about 30 topical sessions.

Not only the production of metals, but also the preparation and the recycling of raw materials and residues are discussed, the impact on the environment and health protection are in the focus of the presentations too. In addition, economic and legal issues such as data security and competition law in an increasing digital global industry are discussed.

The conference is held by invitation of GDMB Society of Metallurgists and Miners and is particu-larly directed to metal producers, plant manufactures, equipment suppliers and service providers as well as members of universities and consultants from the whole world.

GDMB as well accepted scientific society now invites 2019 to Düsseldorf, the capital of North Rhine Westfalia. Together with the four metal trade fairs – GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST – European Metallurgical Conference, EMC 2019 will give a comprehensive over-view to the state of the art of metallurgy.

I wish the conference all the best and I hope that many lecturers and participants will have the op-portunity to update their knowledge and find many new interesting contacts.

The “Bright World of Metals” welcomes EMC 2019 in Düsseldorf

Friedrich-Georg Kehrer

The four metal trade fairs GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST have top priority for the international metallurgical community every four years once again in Düsseldorf. The “Bright World of Metals”, as the event is known, is not just a trade fair highlight with a total of more than 2.200 exhibitors and 78,000 visitors from 120 different countries, however. It is particularly popular due to its tradition of having a high-quality programme held alongside the trade fairs too. The 10th European Metallurgical Conference EMC from 23 to 26 June will be playing a prominent role here again in 2019 – especially for METEC, the 10th International Metallurgical Trade Fair and Congress-es from 25. to 29. June. Since 2007 EMC has been playing a key role to empower the non-ferrous metal sector at each and every METEC.

As a company that focusses on the organisation of trade fairs, we make sure that in-depth know-how is presented. We arrange our events so that they are not merely a business platform; they are instead a stage for the international transfer of expertise, exchange of experience and networking. In this context, conferences like EMC provide important insights into the technologies that will be standard tomorrow, so that it is extremely interesting for both trade visitors and corporate exhibitors to participate.

The combination of METEC and the spotlight on EMC 2019 will generate impressive synergy bene-fits that will give specialists like you tremendous added value when you attend the trade fairs and conferences. It is an extra advantage that CCD. South, where the conference is being held, is locat-ed directly next to the METEC halls 3, 4 and 5, with the result that no time will be lost in transition – enabling the timing of your trade fair visit to be optimised even more effectively.
As the Director of the “Bright World of Metals”, I am looking forward particularly keenly to June 2019, when Düsseldorf will be the international centre of the metallurgical industry again and will be welcoming guests from all round the world at the trade fairs, at EMC. I wish EMC great success and plenty of international participants.
