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
With 330 exhibitors from 16 countries and regions, the 11th AchemAsia in Shanghai opened its doors today.
AchemAsia 2019 is setting new standards. Three months before the opening of the event on 21 May 2019 in Shanghai, the booked exhibition space already exceeds the final count of the 2016 event.
From 1 February 2019, Dr. Björn Mathes will join the Board of DECHEMA Exhibitions. Before, he was Head of Events and Committee Support of DECHEMA e.V.
Updated programme available (as of 20 November 2018) What are today's challenges in industrial water management? How can new strategies,...
The AchemAsia conference focuses on topics that are highly relevant for China’s process industry. Papers can be submitted until 10 January 2019.
Higher international character, clear trends, satisfied exhibitors, but fewer visitors: these arethe keywords to summarize ACHEMA 2018.
The overall performance of bioprocesses is influenced by heterogeneities in all steps of the production process. Heterogeneities of substrates, culture...

Carbon4PUR project explores industrial symbiosis between steel and chemical industry to produce polymer foams and coatings from steel off-gases Flue gases from steel manufacturing contain a mixture of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide, valuable feedstock gases for chemical production. Manufacturing high value polyurethane materials from these flue gases to is the ambition of Carbon4PUR, a 7.8 Mill. Euro Horizon2020 project with 14 partners from 8 countries, coordinated by Covestro. The unique Carbon4PUR technology will valorise steel off-gas without previous cleaning or separation of the gas components. This flexible and energy efficient technology will allow a reduction of the CO2 footprint of polyurethane production by 20-60% and substitution of at least 15% of the oil-based reactants by waste-gas based carbon. A collaboration between value chain partners and experts The Carbon4PUR consortium comprises industrial partners along the entire value chain. Flue gas is provided by steel manufacturer Arcelor Mittal to feed the production of polyurethane intermediates at Covestro. Polyurethane manufacturers Recticel N.V. in Belgium and Megara Resins S.A. in Greece are involved as downstream producers, testing the intermediates for the manufacturing of rigid foams and polymer dispersions. The Port of Marseille Fos, an industrial production site for both Covestro and ArcelorMittal, is the model site for which the industrial symbiosis concept will be evaluated. Leading European research and technology support partners are involved to further develop and evaluate the Carbon4PUR technology: the French Atomic Energy and Alternative Energies Commission and RWTH Aachen University for process design and catalyst development; Ghent University for flue gas treatment; Leiden University and TU Berlin for life cycle and techno-economic assessment;; sustainability solutions provider South Pole Group for investigating social impacts and mechanisms for market uptake; and PNO Consultants for value chain and stakeholder analysis. DECHEMA will provide mapping and assessment of potential replication sites for the technology, together with Imperial College in London, and is responsible for dissemination and communication.
