Every year, we present the Fraunhofer clean manufacturing award “CLEAN!” with the aim of honoring groundbreaking developments in clean technology. Facts about CLEAN! The award is presented in the course of an appropriate trade event in the clean manufacturing sector.
Clean manufacturing is a key technology which drives major cross-industry innovations. It would be impossible to produce microchips, flat screens, implants, pharmaceutical drugs or micro and nano products without a clean or highly-clean manufacturing environment. Outstanding ideas in the field of clean manufacturing enable completely new products to be developed, as well making production processes more cost-effective.
It is an honorary award that is not associated a monetary prize. Winners of the award can use it as a reference with potential customers to prove their expertise and spirit of innovation.
