Evonik has launched its Chemistry in Water production technology, enabling large-scale synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients in water. The solution is designed to minimize the need for large volumes of water in order to simplify processes and reduce environmental impact.
“Improving the environmental footprint for the synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients is critically important for the sustainability of drug manufacturing going forward. It is a great pleasure to work with technology pioneer Professor Bruce Lipshutz and bring Chemistry in Water to commercial scale,” said Stefan Randl, head of research, development and innovation for Evonok’s health care business line.
