Concrete is the most used construction material in building industry worldwide, but is also the main driver for CO²-emissions. Textile concrete is clearly superior to classic reinforced concrete both economically and functionally. Textile concrete products are lighter and thinner, requiring up to 80% less concrete compared to classic reinforced concrete due to the corrosion-free nature of textile reinforcements.

Production technologies for textile reinforced concrete - today and tomorrow

Typical production technologies and textile reinforcements will be shown as well as their dependencies on the intended application. An outlook on future production technologies, as 3D-printing of concrete and fiber reinforcements, will be given.

Non-metallic reinforcement for sustainable concrete applications

By using carbon-, glass or basalt-reinforcements concrete structures can be designed much more slender, durable and ressource-saving than standard steel-reinforced constructions. The presentation shows what kind of reinforcements are on the market already, which are future possibilites as well as obstacles in todays building industry.

Eco-system for Textile Reinforced Concrete applications in the Building and Construction Sector in India and South East Asia

India and many South East Asian countries face serious challenges with corrosion of conventional reinforcement due to the tropical climate. Further on non-existance of proper building code for integration of textiles as reinforcements is an operational challenge. At Raina Industries, the constant endevour is to create an eco-system for the application of this new material in facades, street furniture, modular components and marine applications.

 2. Purposes, legal basis and duration of data processing of your contact details:

Below you will find an overview of the purposes, legal basis and data processing of your contact data.

2.1. Processing of personal data for the participation in the web-talk

Participation in a web-talk is only possible if you visit the website “https://en.industryarena.com/”. When you visit the website, your personal data is already processed by the website operator “IndustryAarena GmbH” so that the website can be operated. IndustryArena GmbH is responsible for the processing of the data collection at the use of the website. In this respect, we refer to the data protection information of the website operator here: https://de.industryarena.com/datenschutz.

This processing of your personal data is neither in our interest nor on our behalf.


If you participate in our offered web-talks, we process personal data as far as this is necessary for your participation (according to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR). The purposes include in particular:

  • Your invitation to the web-talk
  • the registration, organisation, realisation and follow-up of the web-talks

We also process your personal data to protect legitimate interests of us or third parties (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR), such as:


  • Improvement of our offerings and web-talks
  • the follow-up of the web-talks
  • the sending of further information/ invitations to similar web-talks and virtual or real events related to technologies for textile product manufacturing, which are supported by the VDMA Textile Machinery Association insofar as you have not objected against such data processing
  • Reception and processing of enquiries
  • addressing of your individual questions to the moderator


You have the right to object to this processing as described in section 5.

Furthermore, we measure which posts are shared and most often viewed during a Web- talk in order to improve your user experience. For this purpose, we create weekly statistics on the most viewed posts. We only process aggregated data for this purpose.

In any case, we only store your personal data as long as this is necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes described above.

2.2. Processing of personal data within the scope of your consent

We process your personal data on the basis of a declaration of consent given by you (pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR), provided that you have given us such a declaration for specific purposes. You can also see the purpose pursued with the processing from the text of the respective declaration of consent. This concerns the following cases:

  • Passing on of your contact details to the organisations participating in the specific web-talk you were participating in, for the purpose of contacting you

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. We will then no longer process your personal data on the basis of the consent. However, the withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of such processing that was already carried out on the basis of your consent before the withdrawal. They therefore remain lawful even after the withdrawal.


We delete the data if they are no longer necessary for the purposes pursued by us or you have withdrawn your consent and no other legal basis applies. If the latter applies, we delete the data after the other legal basis ceases to apply.


 3. Recipients of personal data

Internally, only those departments and employees working there have access to your personal data who need such access in order to fulfil the purposes stated under point 2.

Externally, the following categories of recipients have access to your personal data:

  • processors we use to provide the services
  • public bodies: authorities and state institutions, such as public prosecutors' offices, courts or tax authorities, to which we may transfer personal data in individual cases if and insofar as there is a legal basis for this in the individual case, in particular an obligation.
  • private bodies: member companies, insofar as you have given your consent


4. Data processing in Third Countries

If data is transferred outside the European Economic Area, we will ensure before the transfer that, outside of exceptional cases permitted by law, either an adequate level of data protection exists at the recipient's site or that you have given your sufficient consent.


5. Storage periods

We generally only store your personal data as long as this is necessary for the fulfilment of the purposes or - in the case of consent - as long as you have not withdrawn your consent. In the event of an objection, we will delete your personal data unless its further processing is permitted under the relevant legal provisions. We also delete your personal data if we are obliged to do so for legal reasons.


6. Rights of Data Subjects

You have the following rights as a data subject of personal data processing:


Right of access: You are entitled to obtain confirmation from us as to whether we process your personal data, and, where that is the case, access to additional information about such processing of your personal data.


Right of rectification and erasure: To the extent the statutory requirements are fulfilled, you can request us to rectify inaccurate personal data and/or – delete your personal data.


Restriction of processing: You can request us – to the extent the statutory requirements are fulfilled – to restrict the processing of your personal data.


Data portability: If you provided us with data on the base of a contract or your consent approval, you can request to receive the data provided by you in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to have those data transmitted to another controller.


Withdrawal of consent: To the extent you gave us consent to process your personal data, you can revoke it at any time with effect for the future. Such withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before its withdrawal.


Objection against data processing in the event of the legal basis of “legitimate interests”:


You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to processing of personal data concerning you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR (balance of interests); this also applies to profiling based on these provisions.


If you object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.


You can contact us at any time to assert your data protection rights. To do so, please use the contact details of the data controllers mentioned above under point 1.


If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates data protection law, you can also lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, in particular in the EU member state or federal state of your habitual residence, place of work or the place of the alleged violation you are complaining about.


This also includes the supervisory authority responsible for us:
