SciMed Ltd will be exhibiting at this year’s Factories for the Future event 2023 which will be held on the 28th March 2023 at the School of Chemical Engineering, University of Birmingham.
Fine chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing has traditionally involved multi-step reactions and physical operations such as mixing, heating, cooling, filtering, drying, and tabletting. Scale-up is primarily concerned with bringing the product to the mass market; however, current issues such as efficient use of raw materials and energy, reducing the number of process steps, efficient separations, and lowering carbon emissions must also be taken into account.
This one-day meeting will look at how future manufacturing plants will need to evolve as we strive for net-zero carbon processes and respond to resource depletion. The following topics will be covered: multi-step synthesis and reactor design, process integration and control, catalysis and selectivity enhancement, big data and machine learning applications, atom efficiency, sustainability, and robotics.
