ACHEMA 2018: Preparations moving into high gear

20.03.2017

There is still over a year to go before ACHEMA 2018 opens, nevertheless preparations are moving into high gear: more than 2,400 companies have already ordered a stand; by the time the halls open on 11 June 2018 the organisers expect the exhibitor figure to top the 3,800 mark, all set to present their products and technologies to some 170,000 visitors from all over the world. This time the world’s leading trade show for the process industry will zero in on three focal topics: Flexible Production, Biotech for Chemistry, and Chemical and Pharmaceutical Logistics.

Suppliers will show the latest innovations in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food processing industries in 11 exhibition groups: from laboratory equipment to pumps, compressors and other components through to complete packaging lines. The accompanying congress with around 800 lectures will provide complementary information on future trends, backed up with applications and issues from industry.


ACHEMA 2018 - the preparations are in full swing

DECHEMA/Stettin

In 2018 the trade show will zero in on three topics that apply to all the varied sectors of the process industry and all the exhibition groups:

Biotech for Chemistry underscores the increasing integration of chemical and biotechnological processes. It is no longer a question of “either-or”, but of the optimum combination of these two worlds, from strain development through to product – with all the challenges this entails for processes and processing methods.


At the same time the demands made on Flexible Production are soaring – whether it be different regional requirements, varying energy and raw materials supplies, shorter product cycles or customised production: flexibility is the key to success on the dynamic global markets.

The solutions include modular plants, robust processes and intelligent components which, thanks to digitalisation, communicate with each other and integrate many tasks into the plant from process adjustment to predictive maintenance.

These developments are inconceivable without the integration of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Logistics which is progressively making a transition from service provider to systems partner. Data exchange across the whole supply chain, track and trace systems even for the smallest loads, while still remaining committed to safe and punctual transport of raw materials and products – all these factors make for the success of a globalised sector.

In the exhibition, congress, and the application-oriented PRAXISforums which bring together suppliers and customers in close proximity to the individual exhibition groups, and also in a variety of accompanying events and publications, these topics will be just as intensively explored and discussed as all the other topical developments that impact the process industry today and tomorrow.

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Rice University researchers test 3-D carbon nanostructures' thermal transport abilities

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
