The Greener Manufacturing Show is Coming to Cologne
The industrial sector is facing an enormous challenge: it must do without fossil fuels and fossil energy, all while establishing circular processes and remaining profitable. This challenge is felt in all branches of industry.
The Greener Manufacturing Show (GMS) sustainability event promises to address this issue and offer solutions. On 9–10 November, decision-makers and innovative companies from all branches of industry will meet in Cologne to discuss the topic of sustainability in industry. The event will focus on sustainable value creation, alternative raw materials, and resource-conserving processes and products. It will present new, environmentally friendly technologies and solutions that will help manufacturers to replace fossil resources, establish circular processes, and reduce CO2 emissions. This makes GMS a unique event in the field of sustainability in industry.
BIO.NRW presents the Home of Bioeconomy
BIO.NRW is an official partner of the event. As a local network, we will use the motto “Home of Bioeconomy” to present the various players in North Rhine-Westphalia’s (NRW) biotechnology and bioeconomy scene, highlighting the diversity present in our federal state. A variety of formats, such as company presentations, workshops, and an exhibition, will be available in one central location.
And that’s not all: entry to the event is free of charge, so come along to our networking area and meet new contacts who could help you reach your sustainability goals.

Learn about bioeconomy in everyday life at the BIO.NRW exhibition
A sustainable economy concerns both production and consumption. But what is sustainability in an everyday context? How can sustainable products improve our daily lives? People increasingly want to know how things are produced and where the raw materials come from. A product exhibition in our exhibition area will reveal the role played by the bioeconomy in everyday products. We will present specific products and the ideas behind them. Learn about the innovations today that are set to change our everyday lives in future.
Have we piqued your interest?
We can say this much: the exhibits range from cutlery and clothes to cleaning agents and new materials – and all feature alternative materials and substances made of bio-based raw materials and residues. As a result, the products gain some entirely new properties and are sustainable yet appealing. Many of the inventors and company representatives will be in attendance, and will be happy to speak to you about the stories behind their products.
