ACHEMA 2021 awaits

ACHEMA is the combined exhibition and congress event for chemical engineering, biotechnology and environmental protection, which leads the global process industry to Messe Frankfurt for a week of cooperation and information exchange once every 3 years. Unfortunately, the health risks and travel restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic have necessitated the postponement of the next in-person ACHEMA meeting. In the meantime, the industry can stay connected through the virtual ACHEMA Pulse 2021 platform.

On 15 - 16 June 2021, ACHEMA Pulse will provide inspiration for innovation and a means for communication between industry members. It will include presentations by top-class and visionary speakers that shed light on the latest topics in the process industry, as well as interactive discussion formats and lectures that address key global issues of relevance to the ACHEMA community. Sustainability is also on the agenda of ACHEMA Pulse in the virtual PRAXISforums. The winning teams of the first ACHEMA Innovation Challenge will also be presenting their innovative solutions to the global community.

Participating in the ACHEMA exhibition guarantees an excellent platform for product and brand positioning and attention from a large specialist audience representing a variety of sectors and over 140 countries. With over 3,700 exhibitors, the showcase is on the cutting edge of innovation and offers solutions for every pressing issue and business type. The show focuses on the main topics that have gained traction in the industry, such as product and process safety in the face of cyber threats, modular and networked production, which can increase efficiency and reduce costs, and the development of the digital lab of the future.


ACHEMA in Frankfurt is the platform which assembles the chemical, pharmaceutical and food production industries by demonstrating the newest equipment and processes. It is considered the most significant trade fair of its kind. The upcoming ACHEMA could not be staged in-person in 2021 due to the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic and has been converted into a virtual format - ACHEMA Pulse.

The next physical edition of the show - ACHEMA 2022, will be staged at Messe Frankfurt between 4 and 8 April. Over 3700 exhibitors and 145,000 visitors are expected to attend.
