A preview on the ACHEMA Congress

From research to application

Researchers, developers and users meet at the ACHEMA congress to discuss new developments and solutions for current challenges in the process industries.

Two formats are utilized to reveal optimal perception:

The PRAXISforums

The PRAXISforums take place within close proximity to the exhibition groups. Short presentations cover current issues on production, best practices and ready-to-use technologies, always with an eye on application.

The congress sessions

The congress sessions discuss application-oriented research and the development from proof-of-concept to the threshold of market entry. Current trends within process technology are highlighted as well.
