Day 2 of Achema 2024

The International Powder and Nanotechnology Forum starts today in Hall 4.c (Room Alliance). Today’s sessions will focus on nanotechnology and simulation. There will also be a poster exhibition.

Below are some other suggestions of what to look out for on Day 2. There are a lot of great presentations today taking place on the Zeta Pharma Innovation and Facette - 3 Via stages. We recommend checking out the agenda at the start of the day so you can plan which talks you’d like to attend. 

Today's Must-See

14:30 - 15:00 (Facette - 3 via) - Sustainability – Reduce, Recycle and Reclaim strategy for Water in Pharma manufacturing through decarbonization

The speaker suggests strategies for achieving sustainability in pharma manufacturing with a focus on reducing, recycling and reclaiming water using decarbonization. 

15:30 - 16:00 (Zeta Pharma Innovation Stage - 4.1) - From Paper to Hardware A Technology Perspective on EU GMP Annex 1 (2022)

The  EU GMP Annex 1 was finally published in August 2022. This presentation focuses on technical measures to support compliance. 

16:30 - 17:00 (Zeta Pharma Innovation Stage - 4.1) - The Ban on Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS): Impact and Status

How the proposed ban could impact the pharma industry, featuring an expert from Eli Lilly and EFPIA.

Tomorrow's Planner

If you’re interested in innovation in small companies, why not check out the Achema Start up Award? From 14.00 in the Start-up Area in Hall 6.0, Stand c74, ten teams will be presenting their technologies and solutions. At the end of the sessions, one team will be taking home prize money of 15,000 EUR.  

During the rest of the show, the Start-up Area is described by the organizers as being “ the central meeting point for young companies and innovation leaders in search of synergies and cooperation, as well as for all participants interested in new trends.”

Also starting on Wednesday is the Flow Chemistry Symposium (Hall 8.1, Symmetrie 3), which will focus on how continuous manufacturing is reshaping pharmaceutical production. 


If you’re looking for an interesting photo opportunity in Frankfurt, then the Bockenheimer Warte U Bahn might be just up your street. The entrance to the subway station is an old tram car that looks as if it has crashed into the pavement entrance. It was designed by architect Zbigniew Peter Pininski, who wanted to bring a smile to people’s faces at a time when there was a lot of opposition to expansions of the local railway network. It was built in1986.

Thought of the Day

“Flow chemistry is an inherently safer alternative to traditional batch processing and involves the continuous flow of process chemicals through tubes or channels.”

Alessandra Vizza from Corning in an interview with The Medicine Maker about the benefits of flow reactor technologies.
