Fact-Finding Mission to Germany for Procurement Managers and Multipliers in the Petrochemical and Process Water Industries, June 11-14, 2018
In the framework of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy’s (BMWi) Foreign Market Entry Program for SME, eclareon organizes a fact-finding mission for US-based executives, procurement managers, multipliers and other interested parties, to be held in the Frankfurt area from June 11-14, 2018. The program is operated in the context of ACHEMA 2018, a world-leading event for the process industries, and is developed and carried out in conjunction with WaterVent and T-Base Consulting.
The aim of this mission is to present state-of-the-art German technologies to the US delegation, foster transatlantic exchange and initiate business cooperation in the field of water and waste water in petrochemicals and related industries.
With a volume well in excess of US$ 150 bn. annually, the U.S. boasts by far the largest global water market (followed by China and Japan, with Germany coming in fourth). The water treatment equipment market alone exceeds US$ 13 bn. per year, with annual growth rates of around 5%.
Some of the biggest challenges shared by many states include drought and climate change impact, hydro-fracking and other energy extractions that contaminate water, unsustainably high levels of water usage, as well as an aging wastewater infrastructure and/or unsophisticated treatment. In these fields and many more, the American water industry can benefit greatly from cooperation with market players from abroad, and in particular from Germany.
An opening and networking event including introductions to BMWi’s Foreign Market Entry Program, the German market, best practice examples and networking opportunities will be held on June 11, 2018, at a central location in Heidelberg.
In the following days, the delegation will visit German companies, locations and organizations and obtain first-hand insights into current showcases and projects. The program will be concluded with a visit to ACHEMA 2018.
