DECHEMA Autumn Special – The Blockchain Forge
Strike while the iron is hot
Blockchain is a hot topic in many sectors, but is it also relevant for the process industry? How can it be applied and what are its “pros” and ”cons”? And what is a blockchain anyway?
Hammer it out
In our DECHEMA Autumn Special you will find out what distinguishes a blockchain from a conventional database and what the advantages and disadvantages are. Blockchain applications in the process industry may range from production, logistics, and quality management to finance, controlling, and beyond. If you are currently evaluating whether a blockchain is the right solution for your application, reports on use cases may help you.
Connect the links into a chain
Evonik, Covestro, and Novartis will share their experience in identifying possible use cases and how to implement a blockchain project. Developers and providers of blockchain solutions will give insights into technical implementations of blockchains which have already been executed within the chemical sector.
Avoiding weak links
For business applications, reliability, security, and trust are important aspects. Let’s discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the technology with blockchain experts who have a wide range of cross-industry experience.
