The pharmaceutical industry will take a bigger share of the spotlight at the 20th edition of the largest annual bulk handling trade fair, POWTECH.

POWTECH 2017 will take place in Nuremberg, Germany in September.

Organisers of the massive event said this week more than half of its 900 exhibitors in 2017 will come from the pharmaceutical sector.

“In 2017 the special display area ‘Focus on Pharma Solids’ will make its debut,” organisers Nurnberg/Messe said.

“This area in Hall 3A will bring together the technologies and products necessary for the production of pharmaceutical solids.

“The exhibits focus on the various steps for pulverising, screening and processing sensitive materials and take account of associated processes like measurement and control technology and particle analysis.”

The three-day event will take place across six exhibition halls.
