Environmental Technologies and Resource Efficiency

New Display Category in 2015 in Hall 13

Increasing resource scarcity is forcing manufacturers to rethink the way they operate. Many companies have come to realize that environmentally sustainable production processes will have a critical role to play in their long-term competitiveness and survival. But is it still possible to do more with less? The Leading Trade Fair "Energy" will present in 2015 a wide variety of eco-friendly and resource-efficient technologies and products that address this crucial question. Inform yourself about the latest technologies and methods for water and waste water treatment, air and waste air purification and energy efficiency in production.

Visitor Guide


The InwaterSolutions exhibition is an international showcase for the marine engineering and research sector and – not surprisingly – one of the HANNOVER MESSE fair’s big highlights. Themed “Subsea in (e)motion” and housed on around 400 square meters (4,300 sq. ft) of display space, InwaterSolutions 2015 will feature eye-popping large-scale exhibits and live demonstrations and take a comprehensive look at the enormous potential of environmentally friendly underwater technologies and solutions.

Visitors will be able to experience marine technology product highlights "live in action" in giant-sized water tanks.
