ACHEMA 2021: Congress sessions set spotlight on hot topics

Nov 13 2020

What are true game changers for the process industries? It’s certainly hard to judge in advance. Many trends are not only caused by technological developments, but also by factors such as economic conditions - oil prices, shifts in global economic power, a virus that freezes whole economies - or cultural changes - the consumer’s craving for SUVs or ‘fast fashion’. But there are some scientific and technological developments that have the potential to significantly change the way the process industry works.

The ACHEMA Congress sets the spotlight on four of these trends in its Highlight Sessions. One of them will showcase biologisation as a major trend in the process industries. Companies such as Genomatica are revolutionising the way chemicals are produced. Supported by advanced analytics and high-throughput research and development processes, they are true biological mega-factories, creating a steady stream of novel biological production systems.

The brand-new Highlight Session format is designed not only to provide participants with food for thought, but encourage discussions even more than conventional presentations: outstanding international speakers and seasoned practitioners present their opposing points of view. The potential barriers and downsides of novel technologies are exposed, which stimulates discussion between speakers and audience. The highly interactive and compact format ensures that a multitude of aspects can be discussed.

Every ACHEMA participant should mark these sessions in their calendar.
