Designing a novel continuous manufacturing plant with superior monitoring and control

Designing a novel continuous manufacturing plant with superior monitoring and control

Issue 6 2015, Manufacturing & Packaging / 6 January 2016 / Ravendra Singh, Jun Zhang, Marianthi Ierapetritou and Rohit Ramachandran, The State University of New Jersey

There is a growing interest in manufacturing the pharmaceutical product continuously . Along with other advantages , it provides an appropriate platform to implement suitable monitoring and control architecture, to improve the product quality and minimise product rejection and operating expenses. Continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing can be also considered as a ‘data rich’ operation since data is continuously generated from the substantial experiments employed in the process development activities or process operation. Therefore, a systematic framework is needed through which suitable sensing and control architectures can be designed, developed, evaluated and implemented into a continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing plant. In addition, an efficient data management system is required for data storage, organisation and subsequent applications. The objective of this article is to introduce a continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing process and pilot plant, and highlight the process analytical technology (PAT), control and data management system integrated with it…

Continuous manufacturing in the pharma industry – an unstoppable trend?

Continuous flow processing in the pharma industry – an unstoppable trend?

Issue 5 2015, PAT & QbD / 22 October 2015 / Bernhard Gutmann and Christian Oliver Kappe, University of Graz

Continuous flow processes have many distinct advantages over discontinuous batch production and therefore, in the last century, continuous operation has become by far the most dominant form of production for high-volume and low-cost materials such as petrochemical and commodity chemicals. The first applications of continuous processes in the pharmaceutical industry emerged only comparatively recently and the vast majority of production is still undertaken in batch reactors. Herein, we highlight some of the advantages that continuous flow processing offers for the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals…
