The emphasis on water management at Achema 2015 indicates the critical nature of water to all industry sectors as the CPI expand and evolve In June, chemical engineers from around the world convened in Frankfurt am Main, Germany for Achema 2015 (Figure 1), the 31st world forum for the chemical process industries (CPI). The event assembled professionals from all sectors of the CPI to draw focus on new technologies and conduct in-depth discussions on some challenging topics the CPI will have to address in the future, with much emphasis placed on the sustainable utilization of resources — especially water. The industries’ continued growth was greatly evident at Achema 2015. This year, more than 166,000 attendees and over 3,800 exhibitors (up from 2012) from 56 different countries took part in Achema’s exhibit halls and myriad technical lectures. Underlining the event’s international reach, Dechema e.V. (Frankfurt; www.dechema.de), the event’s organizer, noted that for the first time, more than half of the exhibitors came from outside Germany. The event also included region-specific panel discussions dedicated to the chemical industries of Saudi Arabia, Brazil and the U.S. Gulf Coast (box on p. 22). While seemingly countless…
