At ACHEMA the three winners of the ACHEMA Start-up Award were awarded: Plasmion, HeiDelTec and Watttron. They will receive a prize money of 10,000 euros each. The Augsburg-based company Plasmion is developing an "Electronic Nose" technology. This allows laboratory mass spectrometers to be upgraded to online sensors. HeiDelTec has developed a drug delivery technology that allows oral administration of peptides and proteins. watttron has developed a modular heating system for the defined zonal heating of plastic films during thermoforming.
