Synthesis process

Pharmaceutical industry

The term Pharmaceutical Industry comprises everything from research, development and manufacturing to commercialization of products mostly produced in batch processes. Products within the pharma process are often found in life science, (oral) solid dosage, API (active pharmaceutical ingredient) and functional food.

PROCESS

Typically for the API (active pharmaceutical ingredient) production is a synthesis process, containing raw material storage, dispensing and charging into reactors, followed by dryings steps using filter dryers, centrifuges or vacuum dryers. The product is then conveyed, micronized, dispensed and packed off. These steps normally require to be contained depending on the nature of the API, using isolators, powder transport systems and adapted valves. The formulation process is generally divided in wet and dry granulation, regardless the API’s need to be dispensed and mixed/ blended with additives in order to get a final product.

CHALLENGES

Healthcare reforms, patent expiries and increased service requirements urge pharmaceutical companies to adapt their business model. Living up to a complex regulatory legal framework is as challenging as increased competiveness, more potent API’s (higher containment requirements), multipurpose processes, lean production philosophy and decreasing maintenance costs.
