ACHEMA is the world forum for chemical engineering, process engineering and biotechnology. Every three years the world’s major fair for the process industry attracts around 4,000 exhibitors from over 50 different countries to present new products, processes and services to 170,000 professionals from all over the world. The spectrum ranges from laboratory equipment, pumps and analytical devices to packaging machinery, boilers and stirrers through to safety technology, materials and software, thus covering the entire needs of the chemical, pharmaceutical and food production industries.
Three focal topics – interdisciplinary & highly relevant
Three focal topics put the spotlight on trends affecting almost every stakeholder in the process industries: Biotech for Chemistry traces the path from gene to process to product as chemistry and biotechnology merge, Flexible Production covers the opportunities offered by digitalisation and modularisation, and Chemical & Pharma Logistics widens the perspective on the logistics chain with its developments in supply chain management and distribution.
The bridge from exhibition to congress: PRAXISforums
The ACHEMA PRAXISforums focus on industrial applications, trends, novel products and services in chemical engineering, biotechnology and the process industry. Market- and practice-oriented topics are presented in compact form by experts associated with our exhibitors. The ACHEMA PRAXISforums are held in the direct vicinity of the respective exhibition group and include topics such as “Pharma meets Production”, “Sensor-based Production Control” or “Bioprocessing: Speed, Flexibility, Disposables”
At the threshold to applications: The congress
The accompanying congress, featuring 800 scientific lectures and numerous guest and partner events, complements the wide range of themes of the exhibition. As a rule of thumb, what’s discussed in the congress at one ACHEMA will be on display in the show at the next.
