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.

Soft robots have a distinct advantage over their rigid forebears: they can adapt to complex environments, handle fragile objects and interact safely with humans. Made from silicone, rubber or other stretchable polymers, they are ideal for use in rehabilitation exoskeletons and robotic clothing. Soft bio-inspired robots could one day be deployed to explore remote or dangerous environments.
Most soft robots are actuated by rigid, noisy pumps that push fluids into the machines' moving parts. Because they are connected to these bulky pumps by tubes,...
Researchers at TU Graz are working together with European partners on new possibilities of measuring vehicle emissions.
Today, air pollution is one of the biggest challenges facing European cities. As part of the Horizon 2020 research project CARES (City Air Remote Emission...
Over the next three years, researchers from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, University of Cambridge, École Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles de la ville de Paris (ESPCI-Paris) and Empa will be working together with the Dutch Polymer manufacturer SupraPolix on the next generation of robots: (soft) robots that ‘feel pain’ and heal themselves. The partners can count on 3 million Euro in support from the European Commission.
Soon robots will not only be found in factories and laboratories, but will be assisting us in our immediate environment. They will help us in the household, to...
Scientists at the University of Leeds have created a new form of gold which is just two atoms thick - the thinnest unsupported gold ever created.
The researchers measured the thickness of the gold to be 0.47 nanometres - that is one million times thinner than a human finger nail. The material is regarded...
An international team of scientists involving the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has unraveled the light-induced electron-localization dynamics in transition metals at the attosecond timescale. The team investigated for the first time the many-body electron dynamics in transition metals before thermalization sets in. Their work has now appeared in Nature Physics.
The researchers from ETH Zurich (Switzerland), the MPSD (Germany), the Center for Computational Sciences of University of Tsukuba (Japan) and the Center for...
