With its new corporate design the unequivocal commitment of DECHEMA (Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology) to dynamic thrust and openness is, quite literally, writ large. “Flexibility, future-oriented planning and openness towards other disciplines have become increasingly important over the past few years, and this is clearly reflected in our new corporate image,” commented Dr. Hans Jürgen Wernicke, the new Chairman of DECHEMA. The Society’s new look does not stop short at the new logo, but includes a new publication format and a revamped website. “DECHEMA is involved in such diverse fields as energy supply, water technology, instrumentation, control and automation technology, industrial safety, cell culture, microalgae and materials research, which address completely different target groups. That is why it is all the more important to have a consistent corporate image that is recognizable at a glance”, said Dr. Kurt Wagemann, the Executive Director of DECHEMA. Developed together with the agency Lindner & Steffen of Nastätten, the new corporate design was launched on 1 January 2010 and will gradually be implemented in all areas of DECHEMA’s activities.
The Society’s new logo retains the combination of flask and cogwheel, however they now open into the third dimension. The flask and cogwheel traditionally symbolize cooperation between engineers, chemists and biotechnologists and have been the distinctive mark of DECHEMA since its founding in 1926.
DECHEMA (Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology) is a non-profit scientific society based in Frankfurt am Main. Today it has over 5,500 members representing scientists, engineers, companies, organisations and institutes. DECHEMA’s mission is to shape and promote technological progress in the fields of chemical engineering, biotechnology and environmental protection. Its varied tasks position DECHEMA at the intersection of science, industry and the public.
