smart city district – CO2 neutral through collaboration



Since 1886, the family-owned companies Eisfink & Rieber have been developing innovative infrastructure solutions & systems that ensure the basic human need "food at any time, anywhere & with the best quality". With the maxmaier® family (5th generation), real estate development in Ludwigsburg is added - today's urbanharbor, which opens a new era for the industrially shaped Weststadt. The historic site is being transformed into new and sustainable workplaces in a sustainable & perspective way via sector coupling (energy, industry & mobility) in a digital and CO2 neutral way.

Collaboration smart city district platform – CO2 neutral @urbanharbor

Through the collaboration of companies from various sectors and activities, their sustainable and digital solutions are to be networked via a joint platform in order to create a holistic organisational tool for a city ecosystem. All processes will be organised and automatically controlled with maximum efficiency and minimum use of resources. This is because neighbourhoods are in competition with end customers (tenants), and important decision-making criteria include costs, benefits and use of resources.

Collaboration - hybrid loop

  • Transformed industrial hall (10,000 m2) with hybrid use of office, test & development space
  • Demand-driven & CO2-neutral controlled via the Smart District platform (transferable to other districts)
  • Collection of real-time & sensor data (temperature, air, light, occupancy, weather, etc.)
  • Supply & disposal in reusable systems
  • E-mobility with battery storage system
  • Parking management with driverless & autonomous parking service
  • Green hydrogen via electrolyser for logistics
  • Predictive energy & plant control management
  • Renewable energy supply with photovoltaics

More freshness in GN reusable containers - through innovative Fresh-Membrane

With our new watertight lid featuring an integrated Fresh-Membrane, fresh produce such as pre-cut salads and ready-to-eat products can be optimally stored, transported, and dispensed in the GN container reusable system. The advantages over plastic bags are clear: no packaging waste, significantly extended shelf life, freshness, and quality of the food preserved due to the special Fresh-Membrane allowing perfect exchange of carbon dioxide and oxygen. Additionally, the hygienic stainless steel has antibacterial properties, minimizing germ formation. Furthermore, sensitive and water-containing fresh products in the robust GN system are protected from daylight and physical stress such as pressure and friction. This ensures freshness without plastic, waste, or transferring.


The space-saving wonder | Rieber Innovation GNauto

Our new GN container GNauto offers the absolute revolution in terms of destacking and space saving. As the name GNauto suggests, this new container developed by Rieber can now also be destacked and handled automatically by robots. This also saves a lot of time in manual use. As a further elementary benefit, the containers require around 60% less storage space, a huge advantage in many kitchens. With this container innovation, Rieber has created another sustainable milestone - being able to use the Gastronorm reusable system in a scalable and efficient way.
