Sustainability & Technology Presented by GEA

The GEA roadshow truck makes a stop at the TUM Campus Heilbronn on Wednesday, November 2, 2022 with the motto "Rolling out innovations".


Visitors can expect an event truck packed with innovative solutions in the field of heating and cooling technology, which has been touring Europe since March 2022 and is making its first stop in Baden-Württemberg at the Bildungscampus Heilbronn.

You can take part in a 30-minute tour through the 70 qm mobile showcase, where you will learn interesting facts about innovations and products in the field of sustainable engineering as well as current trends of digitalization, for example how heat can be used to cool down our warming planet.

Furthermore, you can attend one of the impulse talks in the D-Building on campus, where GEA experts discuss sustainability, digitalization, and innovative technologies.

Both the tours and the impulse talks will give you the chance to meet experts of GEA Heating and Refrigeration, to exchange ideas with them and forge connections.

    Presenter: Tom Oelsner

  • Today’s challenges like global warming, the explosion of energy prices and the lack of skilled workers all demand sustainable approaches. The audience can look forward to a presentation of fundamental knowledge for heat pump applications as well as an introduction and demonstration of how GEA’s digital approaches and products aim to help society overcome these challenges.


    Presenters: Lorena Hoffmann and Dr. Carsten Spieker

  • Sustainability is the key factor for the future of the planet. A more sustainable economy is crucial to positively shape the world of tomorrow. Dr. Nadine Sterley – Chief Sustainability Officer – explains how to integrate sustainability into a business strategy and how to transform a corporate into a sustainable company.


    Presenter: Dr. Nadine Sterley

  • A growing middle class combined with a world population that is expected to reach 10 billion by 2050 will increase global demand for nutrition dramatically, particularly meat and other protein-rich foods. To reduce their negative impact on the climate, more and more consumers start to prefer alternative proteins such as plant-based meats. This talk will discuss the alternative protein market, its possibilities and developments as well as give prognoses for the future.

    Presenter: Heinz-Jürgen Kroner
