Top Themes Cleanzone 2019

The trade fair will be addressing production efficiency in cleanrooms.

Cleanzone shapes the future

Cleanzone Product

How will contamination be controlled in future? Will I still be relying on people for production processes or cleaning, or will this be taken care of by robots? Digitalisation and automation are already helping to optimise processes in cleanrooms. Data generation, data organisation and data exchange are all prerequisites for enabling AI-based systems to react flexibly to changes. Thanks to the use of smart simulations in advance, it is possible to eliminate some problems during the planning phase. At Cleanzone you can discover how your production under controlled conditions might look in future.

Cleanrooms do not have to be expensive


Not all cleanrooms are created equally. Depending on the requirements with regard to particle size and quantity, a lower cleanroom class might be more than sufficient for a company’s needs. There are also a number of popular and flexible options for those times when it is necessary to create a cleanroom quickly, including tents and modular units that can be up and running in just a short period of time. Under the top theme ‘Cleanrooms do not have to be expensive’, we shine a spotlight on successful projects that satisfied the unique requirements of clients. Discuss your plans with the experts at Cleanzone and obtain proposals for individual solutions.

Automated contamination control is more reliable – and it can breathe

Automation and robotisation at Cleanzone

It appears to be a new law of nature: anything that can be digitalised, will be. Including in cleanroom production facilities. On 19 and 20 November 2019 in Frankfurt am Main, the Cleanzone trade fair will demonstrate how this can be put into practice in individual companies.

Cleanzone Conference with strong partners

The Cleanzone Conference – the heart of the event programme – boasts an entirely new format this year. With a compact presentation programme, it shines a spotlight on the topics that are important to the industry's future and comprises the central presentation area at the trade fair. For the first time, the German Cleanroom Institute (DRRI), the VDI Association of German Engineers and the International Confederation of Contamination Control Societies (ICCCS) will be content partners of the event.

19.11.2019, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

‘In the presentations in our block at the Cleanzone Conference, experts will be illuminating the latest ISO standards.’

Koos Agricola, Chairman of the ICCCS Education Committee

‘As an international trade fair, Cleanzone is the perfect platform for discussing important topics in the field of cleanroom technology with a global audience and promoting the transfer of knowledge across national borders. In the presentations in our block at the Cleanzone Conference, experts will be illuminating the latest ISO standards and exploring the significance of international standardisation for product trading, sustainable design and use of clean zones, professional training and uniform product quality.’

‘Cleanzone is an outstanding trade fair at which to bring to life the themes that are vital to the future of the industry.’

Dr. Gernod Dittel, Chairman of the Board of the German Cleanroom Institute (DRRI)

‘Cleanzone is an outstanding trade fair at which to bring to life the themes that are vital to the future of the industry. When I visit exhibitors’ stands, I am able to grasp these concepts in every sense of the word, while the conference gives me the opportunity to learn more about them from experts. As an organisation dedicated to representing the interests of the cleanroom industry, the DRRI covers both of these aspects at Cleanzone. We have a large joint stand at the trade fair, and we will be contributing our expertise to this year's Cleanzone Conference programme. In our topic area, participants will not only learn about the technological fundamentals, but also about visions for the future of cleanroom production.’

Cleanzone Conference Modul 3 
— energized by VDI e.V. —
(VDI Verein Deutscher Ingenieure e.V. / VDI – The Association of German Engineers)

20.11.2019, 10 a.m. - 1 p.m.

‘As an interdisciplinary trade fair, Cleanzone offers the ideal platform for presenting the new guidelines to a broader audience.’

Thomas Wollstein, VDI

‘The technological advances of recent years have been putting ever greater demands on cleanroom technology – to name but one example, nanoparticles must be handled entirely differently to larger particles. These new requirements have given rise to a series of new VDI guidelines. In the VDI module at the Cleanzone conference, experts from the committees responsible for writing these guidelines will present the new guidelines and explain their impact. They will also be exploring the importance of standards and the ways in which any company or employee can benefit from actively taking part in defining these standards. As an interdisciplinary trade fair, Cleanzone offers the ideal platform for presenting the new guidelines to a broader audience.’

Cleanroom Future Award

Cleanroor Award

DRRI Research Award


This year, the German Cleanroom Institute (DRRI) is for the first time presenting a Research Award worth 2,000 euros for an outstanding master's thesis submitted to a German university. The winning thesis must deal with innovative themes in the field of cleanroom technology that allow for practical implementation, and which are either currently of major practical or scientific interest, or may be in future. All thesis submissions must be supported by sound science and must have received a mark of no less than ‘good’ from the university.

Professors and department heads may themselves recommend outstanding works to the offices of the DRRI by sending in a copy of such theses by no later than 20 September 2019. A panel of experts drawn from DRRI members will be charged with evaluating the theses that are submitted.
