Sustainable API Process R&D Enabled by Continuous Manufacturing (Flow Chemistry)

April 5, 2022
8:00 a.m. PDT, 11:00 a.m. EDT, 16:00 BST, 17:00 CEST
Duration: 60 Minutes


Continuous manufacturing (flow chemistry) is a key element in the green-chemistry landscape of a pharmaceutical company. In this webinar, Benjamin Martin, PhD from Novartis will use case studies to illustrate the drivers for continuous processing for clinical supplies, the challenges navigated during process R & D, and a summary of how the sustainability metrics, Process-Mass-Intensity (PMI) and Total CO2-Release (TCR), are positively affected.  

Hongwei Yang, PhD from WuXi STA will show how industry collaboration between Pharma companies and CDMOs with strong capability to quickly develop or transfer in a flow process and assemble customized lines at plant-scale can accelerate the implementation of continuous manufacturing for drug substance supply with a cost-effective and greener process. 

Key Learning Objectives:
  • Sustainability metrics for continuous manufacturing (CM) in pharmaceutical industry 
  • Key drivers for using CM at the clinical stages 
  • How Innovators and CDMOs can work together to speed implementation of CM and bring therapies to patients faster. 
Who Should Attend:
  • Pharmaceutical & Fine Chemists 
  • Academic Chemistry Researchers 
  • Process & Development Chemists 
  • Drug Discovery Chemists
