PZH | Climate-neutral production? Life-cycle management of resources modelled on nature’s processes? Michael Hetzer, Managing Director of elobau sensor technology, and Professor Michael Braungart, initiator of the cradle-to-cradle principle, will present their trendsetting ideas to researchers at PZH.

As a result of the huge response to the first “Future Lab Production and Society” at the beginning of 2016, the lecture series will be continued in 2017. The major question will be: How can we combine production technology and social responsibility?

On Tuesday 7 February 2017 at 11 a.m., Professor Michael Braungart will speak in the PZH’s lecture hall about what he expects from high-quality products and production processes. Together with the architect and designer William McDonough, Braungart has developed the cradle-to-cradle concept – the vision of an economy viewing all materials as recyclable nutrients.

Michael Hetzer will held his lecture on Monday 24 April 2017 at 13 p.m. at PZH. Years ago, he started to consider production at elobau sensor technology under climate change aspects. Meanwhile, the company’s production is entirely climate-neutral. In his presentation, Hetzer will talk about his motivation, his vision of the future and early – or today’s – barriers.
