‘Chemistry’ covers classical aspects, such as chemical, mechanical and thermal process engineering, safety engineering, and also current developments, such as modular plant concepts, process analysis, additive manufacturing and chemical energy research.
At DECHEMA, ‘Bioeconomy’ is where biology and technology meet. The exchange of ideas among biologists, chemists, engineers and colleagues from related fields in our working groups facilitates early detection of the industrial potential of research results.
DECHEMA is home to a vast variety of activities in the pharmaceuticals field. They range from the identification of novel active ingredients, to predictive cell culture models, to research, development and production of innovative biopharmaceuticals and advanced therapy medicinal products through to nanobiomedicine.
’Medical Technology’ at DECHEMA is a topic that has received a welcome boost by the merger with fms, the society for measurement, sensor and medical technology, Dresden. The German Platform on NanoBioMedicine is located at the interface of nanotechnology, biotechnology, the engineering sciences, and medical technology.
The topic ‘Energy & Climate’ analyses the technological challenges posed by the transformation of the energy system, and identifies and evaluates relevant new technologies and products.
From integrated environmental technology to water and waste water treatment, from air and gas purification to energy and resource efficiency, from soil recovery to sustainability assessments and climate protection
This topic focuses on sustainable resource management, which covers the process chains and the entire raw materials cycle from extraction, treatment and processing through to the various forms of use and reuse. The aim is to proactively ensure the supply of requisite raw materials to industry.
