DECHEMA is an abbreviation for "Deutsche Gesellschaft für chemisches Apparatewesen" (German Society for Chemical Apparatus), though it has since been expanded to "Gesellschaft für Chemische Technik und Biotechnologie" (Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology).[1]

Founded in 1926, this is a non profit organisation based in Frankfurt. It has over 5000 chemists, biotechnologists, and engineers as personal members as well as other organisations and company members. DECHEMA awards prizes, such as the DECHEMA medal "for outstanding achievements in the field of chemical apparatus technology".[2]

The main purpose is to support developments in chemical technology, biotechnology and environmental protection. It is seen as an interface between science, economy, industry and public. To this purpose the trade fair ACHEMA is organised and held every three years in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, as the biggest event for chemical technology and biotechnology.

DECHEMA is a member of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering, and acts as joint Secretariat.[3]
