10.08.2017 Cleanzone 2017: Iran expert Adnan Tabatabai addresses the economic situation in Iran with regard to the cleanroom industry

DRRI Expert Sessions cover selected themes in cleanroom technology

VDI seminar on the VDI 2083 cleanroom guideline series

This year's Cleanzone features a varied supporting programme whose themes include future international markets for cleanroom technology, changes resulting from new technologies, and new cleanroom standards that represent the industry’s response to the latest requirements. In addition to exhibitor presentations at the Cleanzone Congress, there will be a series of additional events that offer the opportunity to talk with experts and share ideas.

The Middle East, and Iran in particular, are coming to be seen as particularly attractive markets for many companies in the cleanroom industry, as well as companies in the industries that use cleanrooms – especially the pharmaceuticals industry. What opportunities do these countries offer, and what challenges must be overcome? Participants will be able to obtain answers to these questions in the presentation series “Entering markets in Iran and throughout the Middle East” at the Cleanzone Plaza on Tuesday, 17 October from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Adnan Tabatabai, Managing Director of the Center for Applied Research in Partnership with the Orient (CARPO), is an expert on Iran, and he will be sharing insights into the economic and cultural situation there. He explains: “The process of reintegrating Iran into global markets is well under way, but entails considerable difficulties in the country at political and business levels, as years of sanctions and isolation have left their mark. In addition to the modernisation of industry and infrastructure, Iran is striving to improve living conditions for its people. Progress can be seen most clearly in the healthcare sector, as it is very results-oriented, and allows the international pharmaceuticals and cleanroom industries direct access to good partners, something that makes market entry easier.” Another speaker will be Ciro Del Core, Business Development Manager for Messe Frankfurt Middle East, who will be talking about the market outlook for the cleanroom industry within the region. He will be giving a short presentation on business opportunities for cleanroom companies in Iran.

The German Cleanroom Institute (DRRI) is organising Expert Sessions at Cleanzone 2017 for the first time. Gernod Dittel, Chairman of the Board of the DRRI, explains the concept: “With Expert Sessions, we have created a format that offers users from industry the opportunity to discuss current issues and problems in their own production with experts as part of a wider group. As a result, the DRRI is enriching Cleanzone with an event that has a strong practical focus and provides users with real added value.”

The DRRI Expert Sessions cover the most important aspects of cleanroom production. Twice each day, there will be round-table discussions addressing the topics of ‘Design + Engineering / Standards + Guidelines’, ‘Measurement Technology / Sensors + Monitoring’, ‘Process Equipment + Products’ and ‘Trends of the Future’. The DRRI will be making its experts in these fields available for the event. Anyone who would like to take part in these round-table discussions can submit their current questions and issues in advance by sending an email to clea nzone @messefrankfurt .com. This has two advantages: It gives the experts some time to prepare their response to your requirements, and it allows users to submit their questions anonymously. There will also be an opportunity to submit topics at Cleanzone itself.

VDI 2083 is one of the most important series of standards for cleanroom technology. Now, three new guidelines have been issued – these cover nano-contamination, tightness of containments and determining the desorption kinetics of materials after exposure to gas. What does this entail for cleanroom production? To answer this question, on 18 October from 9:15 to 11:15 a.m., VDI is holding a free seminar at Cleanzone 2017 in which Michael Kuhn from Steinbeis Transfer Center: Energy, Environment and Clean Room Technology, Dr. Udo Gommel and Dr. Markus Keller from Fraunhofer IPA will address this issue. Participation in the VDI seminar is free of charge. As the number of participants is limited, we ask that you register in advance (
