About us

BiobasedWorld is brought to you by DECHEMA. We have been organizing ACHEMA since 1920, the leading show for the process industries. ACHEMA takes places every three years in Frankfurt/Main, Germany and attracts more than 3,800 exhibitors and close to 170,000 visitors. In 1989 ACHEMASIA in Beijing was added as the Asian counterpart and has grown to more than 400 exhibitors and more than 12,000 visitors.

DECHEMA (Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology) brings together experts from a wide range of disciplines, institutions and generations to stimulate scientific exchange in chemical engineering, process engineering and biotechnology. We identify and evaluate emerging technological trends and facilitate the transfer of research results into industrial applications.

DECHEMA is the hub of an interdisciplinary network of topic-oriented committees, organizing events and professional development courses for all who are interested in a specialized subject area. DECHEMA has over 5,800 members - individuals, institutions and companies. The Biotechnology Section and ProcessNet, the joint platform for chemical engineering, are the forums where scientists, engineers, students, companies and institutions meet for knowledge exchange and discussion.

In addition, we administer funding programmes as well as national and European research.
