Show highlights and exhibitors 

The year 2020 has been very difficult, and it dictates its own rules to the event organisers. This year, the Khimia will occupy Halls 1 and 2 of Pavilion No.2. The stands will be arranged in accordance with all safety standards and measures. It will significantly reduce the risk of a large number of people being present in a limited space simultaneously. 

This year's focus is on innovations and high-tech. That is why the Startup ChemZone is a great tool for presenting innovative solutions. Participation in Startup ChemZone is very effective and accessible for small companies. A variety of people come here: inventors and representatives of large corporations. Visitors will see highly efficient flow control equipment, equipment for automation of dosing and sample preparation in the laboratory, units for processing organic waste (oil, fuel oil, gasoil, oil sludge, etc.) into diesel fuel, dyes for process liquids, desulfurization technologies based on glycol dehydration plants and catalysts for their implementation, analytics to reduce risks, prevent emergency situations, reduce costs and increase productivity of pre-production plants, metal polymers that allow to reduce the cost of repairs (buildings, structures, equipment) and not to buy new equipment to replace the worn-out one, antibacterial plastics, rubber and antiseptic based on the technology of surface modification by nanoparticles. 

This years participants of the Startup ChemZone are AMT (Moscow), Astera (Samara), ReinnolC (Ekaterinburg), PharmPrint (Moscow), ECORD colourants (Nizhny Novgorod), Ecotop (Moscow oblast), NPP Plus (Perm), and Sheg-Polymer (Tula).
