Inspiring process industries: our ACHEMA program
By combining the real and the digital worlds, we empower our customers and partners to transform their industries and markets, contributing to better the everyday for billions of people. Join our comprehensive presentation program at ACHEMA 2022 to get inspired about technologies and innovations with purpose.
Where to find us at ACHEMA 2022!We are not just a vendor of products – we are a partner to develop tailor-made and future-built solutions in a strong ecosystem with our customers. Learn about the latest cooperations and developments in process industries by attenting our presentations at the different ACHEMA stages.
Digitalization creates Speed
Let’s meet at the Digital Hub – the venue for digital players at the heart
of ACHEMA! It will be the platform to exchange about the digital
transformation, it’s potential for the process control community and
about highly relevant technologies and use cases with focus on software
& platforms, cloud & infrastructure, and digital consulting.
Innovation creates sustainability
Get inspired in the „Green Innovation Zone - This special area on sustainable production and circular economy will highlight green innovations and the challenges facing the process industry on the way to carbon-neutral production with focus topics like sustainable chemistry, bio-based economy, row-material, energy & water. Visit our presentations about recycling, circular economy and hydrogen and find out how our portfolio and the digital twin approach can support in raising sustainability of products, plants and processes by saving finite resources through infinitely available data.
Automation creates opportunities
The ACHEMA-Congress comprises the complete spectrum of chemical and process engineering as well as biotechnology themes. Under the overarching headlines “Fossil free production”, “New developments in production”, and “Laboratory and analytics”, the topics range from analytics, energy supply, process design, reaction technology through to safety. The sessions will focus on application-oriented research and the development from proof-of-concept to the threshold of market entry. The ACHEMA PRAXISforums are held in the immediate vicinity of the respective exhibition group and focus on industrial applications, new products and services in chemical engineering, biotechnology and the process industry. Market- and practice-oriented topics are presented in a concise format. PRAXISforum presentations that do not directly relate to a specific exhibition group can me submitted for the “Open Topic” session.
Curiosity creates future
It takes flexibility, collaboration and embracing change to master today’s challenges
in process industries. Experience the spirit that makes us create future-proof solutions.
Inspired by collaboration, partnership and open-mindedness.
Collaboration creates successConstant exchange and constructive discussions are key to common success! In addition to the ACHEMA 2022 program, please find recordings of customer talks on hot topics of the process industry here:
Siemens & Guests Shows 2021:
How process industry can become resilient and sustainable
Learning about our customers’ challenges and perspectives in a lively, open discussion:
- What challenges did the companies face in the past year and how did they master them?
- What future challenges do they foresee for their companies and their industries?
- How does the topic of sustainability come into play in their industry and what does it involve?
- Why are partnerships and cooperation in ecosystems so important (in all this)?

Ramping up production in the quantities needed and accelerating clinical trials in the timeframes required to combat pandemics is one of the biggest challenges the pharma industry has ever faced.
As trusted partners, Siemens, GSK and Atos have successfully just doing that via a new digital process twin.
In our talk with Benedikt Efker (Head of Digitalization Production & Assets at LANXESS) and Ulrike Lehnhof (Corporate Account Manager at Siemens) we are focusing on the digital transformation in the field.
In the chemical industry, the biggest challenge is to ensure that the system runs reliably and safely. The "Siemens Digital Worker" is a concept that enables operating personnel to digitize and automate work in the field using the latest technologies such as AR / VR. The concept supports the user in digitizing work processes in process systems and in paperless processing with remote access thanks to electronic documentation, access information and guidance through intelligent devices.
How will the Chemical Industry transform in the next years? What will production and/or operation look like in the future?
Join Steffen Wagner (CTO Process Automation at Siemens AG) and Miguel Angel Fernandez (VP Sales, Head of Verticals Chemicals, Glass, Oil&Gas at Siemens AG) in their exiting discussion about the future of process industries with Dr. Bernhard Kirchmair (CDO at Vinci Energies) and Dirk Ramhorst (CIO and CDO at Wacker Chemie AG), answering these questions and more.
What manufacturer require for staying competitive on the long run, are concepts to realize flexibility in production but also in plant design and construction.
This is why modular production is one of the hot topics, that we will discuss in detail with our customer Dr. Hans-Joachim Neumann (Executive Vice President, Electronics | Integrated Supply Chain, Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany)
The Medicines Manufacturing Innovation Centre (MMIC) is a collaboration between CPI, the University of Strathclyde, founding industry partners GSK and AstraZeneca, and Government funding partners Scottish Enterprise and UK Research and Innovation. This collaborative partnership business model will help the MMIC achieve its aim to benefit patients, the environment and the UK economy through accelerating the introduction on new technology into medicines manufacturing, via flagship Grand Challenge projects.
By bringing together a digital twin and continuous manufacturing technologies into a digital test-bed, Grand Challenge 1 will fulfil its aim to produce oral solid dose medicines more robustly and efficiently. The contribution by Siemens will also support Grand Challenge 2's focus on faster more flexible delivery of medicines to patients via just-in-time packing and Qualified Person release and enabling adaptive clinical trial supply.
