View Full Event Details

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 exhibitors from all over the world to present new products, processes, and services to professionals

The exhibition's 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. The accompanying congress, featuring scientific lectures and numerous guest and partner events, complements the themes of the exhibition.

 

ACHEMA 2021, the 33rd ACHEMA, with a new look and new focus themes
Focus Topics

  • Product and process safety

The increasing use of Internet of Things (IoT) devices in plant operation and production puts IT and cyber security at the top of the agenda. Cyber attacks are becoming more frequent. The interplay between the physical and virtual worlds must therefore be secured. Weak spots along the entire value chain have to be evaluated and eliminated, from the procurement of raw materials to the recycling of products at the end of their useful life.

  • The digital lab

It’s in many cases still a long way to go before intelligent digital workflows will be implemented in a fully networked laboratory. The minimum basis is the construction of a powerful IT environment and fully integrated devices; but it can also go up to a complete redesign and repartitioning of laboratories.R&D laboratories and quality assurance laboratories may pursue different approaches. Therefore, a modular design is just as reasonable for the laboratory as it is for production facilities. Both laboratory types generate a large amount of data, which must be evaluated using big data methods.

  • Modular and networked production

Manufacturing processes in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries must be flexible, fast and cost-effective. Modular process skids that offer these features are pre-assembled, tested in the pilot plant and then assembled on site. The skids are equipped with their own programmable control logic or can be integrated into a higher-level process control system. Module Type Packages (MTP) with open standard interfaces allow for true interoperability. Modular systems are the key to meeting customer requirements for small batches of different products.

More Novelties

Based on the proven ACHEMA concept with its unique range of topics and the established interplay of exhibition and congress, the organizers at DECHEMA are currently working on new formats that will offer even more opportunities for discussion and networking. These include matchmaking tools as well as new interactive event formats. They are intended to stimulate discussion and provide additional impulses.

The hall layout has also been slightly adapted to make optimum use of the structural changes on the exhibition grounds and to integrate the brand new Hall 12, located right in the center.

<b>Digital Hub<b>
The process industries are going digital and they need specialized partners to get the best out of digitalization, big data and artificial intelligence. This is why ACHEMA 2021 is introducing the Digital Hub. The Digital Hub serves as a central meeting point and home of companies specializing in digital offerings. With a new, integrated event concept, developed in league with key players from the digital sphere, it brings the digital transformation to the heart of ACHEMA.
