Final of the ACHEMA Start-up Award: Who will make it to the winners’ podium?
The tension is rising: On August 24, 2022, the ten finalists of the ACHEMA Start-up Award will present themselves live to the audience at ACHEMA. And then it's "The winner is..." for 3 start-ups that will be honored. They receive prize money of 10,000 euros each and the full attention of the global process industry.
Entrepreneurial scientists, future founders and owners of start-ups were invited for the third time to apply for the ACHEMA Start-Up Award. Ten start-ups have made it to the finals. The range of technologies is as broad as the topical range of the process industry and covers sustainability analysis, Point of Care tests, electrosynthesis and antibody isolation as well as transport systems for oligonucleotides, a platform for chemical building blocks for “undruggable” diseases, artificial intelligence for process optimization, real-time analytics for chemical processes and predictive maintenance for pipe systems. All companies will present themselves to the public at the EY Innovation Stage from 2 p.m. on August 24, 2022. The winners will then be announced at 5:.00 pm. During the entire ACHEMA week, the finalists can also be found in the Startup Area in Hall 6.0.
And these are the finalists:
Carbon Minds is a data analytics startup. It uses a proprietary digital model of the global chemicals and plastics industry to offer its clients transparency about environmental impacts in global supply chains.
Cenios is focused on development of next generation of POCT-Kits (Point-of-Care-Teste) for absolute quantification of analytes. the kits will be used as an alternative method for therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) and can significantly reduce the cost and time of clinical measurements.
ESy-Labs GmbH is a pioneer in electrifying the chemical industry, developing processes for the electrosynthesis of organic chemicals based on high-throughput screening and artificial intelligence.
Lumatix Biotech seeks to improve the availability and affordability of antibody products by developing a light-controlled affinity matrix as a superior alternative to Protein A chromatography.
Phaidra creates AI-powered control systems for industrial processes. Its no-code software enables domain experts to specify which performance metrics they want to optimize, along with the operating parameters.
PipePredict offers precise digital leakage localization, predictive maintenance, and real-time monitoring of pipe networks by analyzing existing sensor data with a digital twin and AI algorithms.
PRAMOMOLECULAR has developed a particularly simple technology with which therapeutic oligonucleotides such as siRNAs can be transported efficiently and tolerably into the target cell in order to silence disease-causing proteins in the lungs, heart or pancreas.
Pro-AspectX is developing a plug and play, non-invasive sensor to improve chemical, biotechnological and life science processes to highest possible efficiency, simultaneously raising the process safety by a forecast of critical situations.
PROSION develops a first-in-class approach to address so far undruggable pharmaceutical targets that are linked with various hard-to-treat diseases through a disruptive platform of chemical building blocks called ProMs.
Semodia offers software solutions for the modularisation of the process industry, transferring the ""Plug-&Play""-principle of office hardware via module type packages into the process industry.
