Be it the very latest information or dialogue with experts, Cleanzone's array of events and top themes offers you the opportunity to broaden and deepen your cleanroom expertise.
We are currently preparing for the new Cleanzone 2019 programme. Please be patient, more information about what you expect to see in 2019 coming soon.
Cleanzone Conference: The ultimate in cleanroom expertise
At the Cleanzone Conference, you can find out how to plan, build and operate your cleanroom reliably and efficiently. High-calibre speakers from industry, science and research will be providing information on the current status of technology and standards. Examples of applications offer you a view of what modern production under cleanroom conditions can look like. The range of topics to be covered is determined by a congress panel in conjunction with ReinraumAkademie and Messe Frankfurt.
Conference topics and lectures are being selected by an international jury for their topicality, scientific expertise and relevance.
- Frank Duvernell (ReinraumAkademie, Deutschland)
- Prof. Gernod Dittel (Dittel Engineering, Deutschland)
- Conor Murray (Irish Cleanrooms Society/ICS, Dublin, Irland)
- Dipl.-Phys. Thomas Wollstein (Verband Deutscher Ingenieure/VDI, Deutschland)
- Koos Agricola (VCCN, Niederlanden)
The CleanroomAward is aimed at companies, organisations, scientific institutions and individual persons.
ReinraumAkademie is looking for groundbreaking advances with regard to innovation, sustainability and efficiency. An international jury from the fields of Research and Teaching as well as Practitioners will select the five most advanced concepts. These are then presented during the Cleanzone. The best innovation will be chosen by visitors to the trade fair.
And the winner is:
KEK GmbH, Germany
Product: Folding table for service technicians
- Egon Buchta
- Frank Duvernell
- Dr. Roy Fox
- Prof. Dr. Gerhard Winter
- Josef Ortner
The winners of the CleanroomAward 2017 was Brendsen: Connected Cleanroom Application.
The Creative Prize 2017 goes to Mecora Medizintechnik: sphairlab.
Everything changed after the Cleanroom Award
In 2016, the ‘Shellbe’ mobile cleanroom unit won the Cleanroom Award at the Cleanzone trade fair. Professor Gernod Dittel and Matteo Filippi from the Adriatic Institute of Technology (AIT) in Ancona were the ones who presented this project at Cleanzone 2016, and in our interview, Prof. Dr. Gernod Dittel tells us what has happened with ‘Shellbe’ in the time since. Those who are interested have until 31 July to submit their innovations for consideration for the Cleanroom Award.
In 2016, Shellbe won the Cleanroom Award. How has this award impacted the development of this system?
“Once we won the award, everything changed. The Adriatic Institute of Technology became much more widely known, and people who had never even heard of AIT suddenly began contacting us. It was wonderful to see how this innovation spread through the industry like wildfire.”
What projects have been implemented in the meantime? What projects do you want to realise in future?
“We have received a huge number of enquiries – especially from laboratories, medical practices, hospitals and production facilities for highly toxic medications. In Italy we have even implemented Shellbe as a GMP intermediate storage facility for a hospital. Demand is particularly strong in developing countries and in crisis-affected areas. Shellbe offers a tremendous advantage here: It can be set up much more quickly and flexibly than a conventional hospital. Even the dismantling process is easy, as contaminated components can be sterilised in autoclaves.”
What is the most spectacular project that you have been involved in?
“AIT is working with the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research to develop ‘Shellbe’ laboratories that can be set up in the direct vicinity of fish farms. These labs will be used not only for the on-site analysis of samples, but also for the production of new substances aimed at reducing the use of antibiotics in fish farming. The fragility of the substances makes close proximity to aquaculture facilities absolutely essential.”
Will you also be taking Shellbe to Cleanzone Middle East, which is being held in Dubai for the first time in 2018?
“Yes, this is a market of particular interest for our mobile cleanroom. Cleanzone Middle East offers us an excellent platform from which we can enter the Gulf Region and the Middle East, and Matteo Filippi will be making a presentation on Shellbe at the event.”
Why would you recommend taking part in the Cleanzone Award?
“Getting ready for the Cleanroom Award required a great deal of work, because you have to make sure that both your project and your presentation are well prepared if you want to be successful. But it is worthwhile, as it gives rise to something that would not be available on the market otherwise.
Cleanroom Future Talks: Discussions with experts
Cleanroom Media invites you to discuss the latest trends in the cleanroom industry with experts in a small, personal group. Get answers to the specific questions that matter for your production.
Top Themes Cleanzone 2018
The trade fair will be addressing safety and security in cleanrooms, with a particular focus on such things as digital access controls and counterfeit protection. Thanks to biotechnology and genetic engineering, the use of targeted therapies and custom diagnostics is becoming ever more common. The demands placed on cleanrooms by modern and personalised medicine and medical technology products are another top theme at the trade fair. In addition, aspects such as the simulation of cleanroom processes and the use of the BIM method to plan production facilities will be discussed at Cleanzone 2018. By visualising airflows before construction has started, it is possible to identify sources of contamination in advance and take appropriate steps. Throughout all the themes, events and exhibitor presentations, two key drivers of innovation are evident: digitisation and energy-efficiency.
Focus on research and development
Universities and research institutes are drivers of innovation for industry – particularly in the highly dynamic field of cleanroom technology. Their findings give rise to new approaches, offer solutions to current problems and lay the foundation for future products and processes. The list of institutions that have already signed on includes Albstadt-Sigmaringen University, Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA), Hermann-Rietschel-Institut at the Technical University of Berlin, OTH – Technical University of Applied Sciences, Amberg-Weiden and METAS (Federal Institute of Metrology).
