Achema 2022: World Forum for the Process Industries
02.12.2021 - Following Achema Pulse 2021 - the pioneering digital event for the process industry - Achema 2022 will be back in Frankfurt: from April 4 to 8, 2022, the Frankfurt exhibition center will once again be the meeting place for the global process industry. In times of pandemic, a comprehensive hygiene concept ensures that personal exchange and networking are once again safely possible on site.
"After a two-year dry spell, the need for an intensive technical and personal exchange is palpable," says Thomas Scheuring, Managing Director of Dechema Ausstellungs-GmbH. This is also reflected in the increasing exhibitor demand: currently, more than 2,400 exhibitors have already registered, who will present their range of products, solutions and services for the process industry on more than 100,000 m2.
"I sense a great spirit of optimism in the chemical industry. The urge to drive new projects to build the global circular economy as well as to reduce greenhouse gas emissions continues to grow. I am sure: Because of the magnitude of the tasks, cooperation will be the key to success. The personal exchange at Achema can provide an initial spark for further initiatives and cooperations. After long discussions about goals, we are now talking about solutions. I'm looking forward to it," emphasizes Klaus Schäfer, Covestro's Chief Technology Officer.
Trendsetting technology and global networking will continue to characterize the world's leading trade show in 2022. Manufacturers and service providers from nearly 50 nations will present products for the chemical, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, energy and environmental sectors. Founders and young entrepreneurs will meet in the Start-up Area.
"Every Achema is close to my heart - whether virtual or real. Next year, I'm looking forward to inspiring customer meetings and exchanges with the community. We want to give our customers impetus on how we can implement the digital transformation together. Specifically, we want to share our expertise from the pharmaceutical and chemical industries," adds Eckard Eberle, CEO Process Automation at Siemens.
"As a major industrial employer in the Rhine-Main region and a traditional exhibitor, Achema has always had a very special significance for Samson," says CEO Andreas Widl. "We are very much looking forward to meeting our customers and partners in person again in 2022, presenting technological innovations and discussing the opportunities and challenges of the future together."
This is exactly what Achema 2022 will address with the focus topics "Modular and Networked Production," "The Digital Lab" and "Product and Process Security." The megatopics of digitalization and climate neutrality are also moving even more into the focus of Achema with the "Digital Hub" and the "Green Innovation Zone".
Achema is the world forum for chemical engineering, process engineering and biotechnology. Every three years, the leading global trade fair for the process industry takes place in Frankfurt am Main. At Achema 2018, nearly 3,800 exhibitors from more than 50 countries presented their innovations to some 145,000 attendees from around the world. The spectrum covers everything from laboratory equipment, pumps and analytical instruments to packaging machines, boilers and stirrers, safety technology, materials and software - everything needed in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food manufacturing industries. The accompanying congress complements the exhibition's wide range of topics with scientific lectures and numerous guest and partner events. The next Achema will be held in Frankfurt am Main from April 4 to 8, 2022.
