Achema 2012

Achema: BVAA’s Peter Churm and Rob Bartlett

As it comes around only every three years, expectations were high for this June’s international exhibition and congress for the chemical engineering, environmental protection and biotechnology industries held in Frankfurt, Germany.

While the Achema website officially describes exhibitors as being ‘very satisfied’ we’re not sure this actually translated into substantial numbers of valvebuying visitors. Official attendances were described as ‘stable’ but to many attendees it seemed rather quiet, especially in the more distant halls. Perhaps Achema has become too big and lost a little of its focus? That aside, BVAA’s Valve User magazine and Members’ Literature DVD proved as popular as ever with attendees, and we received many visitors over the 5 days from the BVAA membership.
