The AIChe Academy offers chemical engineering training and education on process safety, process hazard analysis, bulk solid handling and more. The detailed program for September –November 2018 is now available.
Depending on region, requirements for sustainable chemistry can be quite different - this is one result of a workshop series in preparation for the Global Chemicals Outlook II. Find more in the latest ISC3 newsletter.
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.
