Advanced manufacturing (Symbolbild)

The production sector is the backbone of Europe’s industry with about 2 million companies and more than 30 million people working in this area. According to the EU, about half of all research funds are spent in this sector. There is certainly plenty of scope for research in this field: on the central challenges of digitalization and sustainability, for example. And metrological issues play a crucial role here too. To be able to bring together and promote metrological capacities, the European Association of National Metrology Institutes (EURAMET) has founded a European Metrology Network (EMN) for Advanced Manufacturing. Acting coordinator is Harald Bosse of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB).

UDO, das Untertagelaboratorium der PTB, besteht inzwischen seit 30 Jahren und bietet mit einem der weltweit niedrigsten Strahlungspegel beste Bedingungen für die Überwachung der Umweltradioaktivität und damit indirekt auch für die Beobachtung des Klimawandels und dessen Parameter. Letzteres geschieht durch die Beobachtung von natürlichem Radon in der Atmosphäre, das dabei als „tracer“ für die Ausbreitung von Treibhausgasen dient und Rückschlüsse auf deren Ursprung und Emissionsraten erlaubt. Eingerichtet wurde es im Jahr 1991 zunächst im Bergwerk Asse II. 2011 zog es ins Salzbergwerk der esco (Kali + Salz AG) in Grasleben um. Ein Großteil der in Europa eingesetzten Dosimetriesysteme, deren Daten stündlich an das Joint Reseach Center (JRC) der EU-Kommission nach Ispra (Italien) geliefert werden, wurden im Laufe der Zeit im UDO-Labor untersucht und kalibriert.
