Information 4.0
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:

Software for energy and material efficiency

Download detailed product information about:

Umberto NXT Efficiency - software for resource efficiency
Umberto NXT MFCA - software for material efficiency

Please feel free to sign up for one of our online web presentations on our Umberto software.

Software for compiling Sankey diagrams

Download detailed product information about:

e!Sankey - software for visualizing energy and material flows


Please feel free to download a free e!Sankey trial version, which you can use for 14 days.

Solution to our estimation question

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
