In answer to the great demand, ACHEMA 2015 offers as per now additional exhibition space for Pharmaceutical, Packaging and Storage Techniques. Almost eleven months before the start, ACHEMA 2015 is thus well on target.
The organisers anticipate similar participant figures as for 2012 when around 3,800 exhibitors and 167,000 participants flocked onto the Frankfurt exhibition grounds. The deadline for submitting lectures for the Congress programme is 31 August 2014.
With less than a year to go before the opening of the world forum of the process industry, scheduled for 15–19 June 2015 in Frankfurt am Main, the organisers already see good grounds for optimism. “We are glad to be able to offer the numerous interested parties additional exhibition space in Pharmaceutical, Packaging and Storage Techniques” says Dr. Thomas Scheuring, CEO of DECHEMA Ausstellungs-GmbH.
In addition to hall 3 the nearby “Forum” is now also available. In recent weeks, a waiting list had to be kept due to the great demand. “Now we can accommodate all customers”, Dr. Scheuring is glad to report. In other exhibition groups, such as Instrumentation, Control and Automation Techniques and also Pumps, demand has also already exceeded comparable figures for the previous event. Constantly rising registration figures from China and India are by now taken for granted, but there is also a keen demand from European countries, such as Spain or Great Britain.
For the first time ACHEMA is launching three focal themes which, being multidisciplinary trends, will involve a wide range of exhibition groups. ‘BiobasedWorld’ will present technologies and solutions relating to the use of sustainable resources and industrial biotechnology.
With ‘Innovative Process Analytical Technology’ the organisers span the gamut from Laboratory and Analytical Techniques through to Automation. Finally, bridging the gap between zero liquid and low-emission production, ‘Industrial Water Management’ offers solutions for a wide variety of regional and technical requirements.
These topics also play an important part in the Congress programme, which traditionally gives priority to the blend of science and industrial relevance. Hence, application-oriented themes can be discussed in direct proximity to the respective exhibition halls, thus enabling participants, depending on their interests, to plan their visit to maximum advantage. Panel discussions and guest events round off the new, streamlined format of the Congress programme.
“On the one hand, we aim to cover the whole spectrum of themes, on the other hand we also endeavour to eliminate overlaps between parallel thematic strands”, is how Prof. Kurt Wagemann, CEO of DECHEMA e.V. puts the challenge facing the planners.
There is no doubt about it: a summer break is not an option for the organisers of ACHEMA. “We are again looking forward to a fantastic event and we’re pulling out all the stops to achieve that goal”, declare the two CEOs unanimously.

Successfully transferring Industrie 4.0 into reality

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
