Semodia, Pipe Predict and Lumatix Biotech are the winners of the ACHEMA Startup Award for their offerings that provide, respectively, "plug and produce" in modular plants, predictive maintenance in pipelines and the insulation of antibodies. The winners reportedly receive 10,000 euros.

"The thematic breadth of the winners reflects the variety of solutions the process industry has to offer for a wide range of issues," says Andreas Förster, CEO of DECHEMA, at the awards ceremony in Frankfurt on August 24, 2022. "Startups play a very important role in this with their innovative power."

DECHEMA, High-Tech Gründerfonds and Business Angels Frankfurt RheinMain, with the support of Clariant, conducted the ACHEMA Startup Award competition for the third time.

Dr. Nikolaus Raupp from High Tech Gründerfonds focused in particular on the importance of disruptive innovation by startups for a faster transformation to a sustainable circular economy. Digitization offerings and platforms for new active pharmaceutical ingredients were also among the finalists.
