Suc­cess­ful ACHEMA 2018 closes in Frank­furt

Chemical Industry Digest - - News & Views -

At the most im­por­tant trade show for the process in­dus­try, more than 3,700 ex­hibitors from 55 coun­tries show­cased the lat­est equip­ment and in­no­va­tive pro­cesses for the chem­i­cal, pharma and food in­dus­try. In the field of clas­sic process tech­nol­ogy hall, the pump ex­hi­bi­tion or in the plant en­gi­neer­ing sec­tion, many stands were so crowded that vis­i­tors had to take some time to pass through the halls.

A very vis­i­ble trend this year: At many stands he vis­i­tors could ex­pe­ri­ence plants and equip­ment in augmented re­al­ity with the aid of spe­cial gog­gles or even test their ap­ti­tude in com­pletely vir­tual sur­round­ings.

The three fo­cal top­ics were very well re­ceived. Un­der the motto “Flex­i­ble Pro­duc­tion” nu­mer­ous ex­hibitors showed mo­du­lar so­lu­tions and in­tel­li­gent com­po­nents for the plant of to­mor­row. “Biotech for Chem­istry” com­prised process de­vel­op­ment and equip­ment from the lab to the fer­menter that in­te­grate biotech­no­log­i­cal meth­ods into the chem­i­cal in­dus­try. “Chem­i­cal and Pharma Lo­gis­tics” put a spot­light on the ad­vanc­ing integration of the sup­ply chain and at­tracted new tar­get groups that are in­creas­ingly not “only” ser­vice providers but sys­temic part­ners of the process in­dus­try.

The next ACHEMA will take place dur­ing 14-18 June 2021 in Frank­furt.
