Product information downloads
As a sustainable business, we have encouraged our guests at Hannover Messe to ask us for a digital edition of our information material. Together, we have reduced our paper use at the event to a minimum and would like to thank you all for supporting this important action.
We compiled all the information in one convenient place, so you now have the chance to look at it at your own pace and according to your immediate interests:

Solution to our estimation question
We asked you the following question at Hannover Messe: How many MJ of energy does Aurubis – the world's biggest copper recycling company – need to melt down this amount of copper?
The correct answer is: Aurubis needs 4 MJ of energy to melt down the copper remnants contained within the glass. (Starting temperature: 20°C)
4 mega-joule translate to about 1.10 kWh. This is the same amount of energy needed to run a 300-liter refrigerator for 2 days, or to produce 90 hours of lighting with an energy efficient light bulb (11 watts).*
Congratulation to our winners
First place: Axel Richter, student from Göttingen
His guess: 4 MJ
Prize: An Umberto NXT MFCA annual license & the book „100 Betriebe für Ressourceneffizienz“
Second place: Hans van Winden, Director at Indoles
His guess: 4,05 MJ
Prize: An e!Sankey license & the book „100 Betriebe für Ressourceneffizienz“
Third place: Wulf Kraneis, CEO at Optimize
His guess: 3,6 MJ
Prize: To go cup made from naturally organic, biodegradable bamboo fibre & the book „100 Betriebe für Ressourceneffizienz“
Thank you very much to all participants and congratulation to the winners!
