For the 66th time, Europe's largest trade congress of the concrete and precast industry took place - the BetonTage 2022. In the Congress Centrum in Ulm, more than 2000 participants from 20 nations used the congress days and evening events for lively exchange of knowledge and networking. In addition to presentations by renowned speakers from practice and research, the trade visitors were able to inform themselves about the latest developments in the machine, software and supplier industries in an extensive exhibition.

Trend-setting solutions from PohlCon
In addition, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Mazen Ayoubi, Team Leader Research JORDAHL and Professor of Building Materials Science at the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, spoke about the development of the memory steel connector - a novel connecting element for thin-walled carbon concrete components - and the initial results of the associated demonstrator test facility. His presentation fitted ideally into the theme of the conference "Sustainable Construction with Concrete" and showed a very positive response, followed by many requests - clear evidence that sustainability is desired or already practiced in many areas of the industry.
