Streamlined life cycle assessment of single use technologies in biopharmaceutical manufacture

by Kristi Budzinski, David Constable, Daniel D’ Aquila, Phillip Smith, Sri R. Madabhushi, Andy Whiting, Tom Costelloe, Michael Collins

Streamlined cradle-to-gate life cycle assessment on a biological bulk drug substance (BDS) manufacturing process utilizing SUT at the 2000 L scale by a segment of American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute Pharmaceutical Roundtable member companies.

The goal of this study was to highlight where pharmaceutical companies, and biologics producers in particular, can reduce the environmental impact of their drug substance manufacturing.

Statistical mixture designs for media development with agro-industrial residues – Supporting the circular bioeconomy
Statistical mixture designs for media development with agro-industrial residues – Supporting the circular bioeconomy

We invite you to read EFB Bioeconomy Journal’s most recently published article
(open access), by Nicolas Maguire, Tim Kuhmann, Doreen Gerlach, Rong Fan and Peter Czermak.

Nutrient-rich side streams can be used in fermentation media to produce biomaterials, biofuels and other high-value products, contributing to the circular bioeconomy.

However, the efficient valorization of side streams requires media optimized for the fermentation organism and the desired product. In an exemplary process, the authors investigated statistical mixture designs for the development of a medium containing food-grade agro-industrial residues.

ACTIP 2022: New Branding, Website and LinkedIn

Over the past months we have been through a rebranding process in which we set out to improve the look and feel of Animal Cell Technology Industrial Platform (ACTIP) to be more in line with our present day activities.

As we bring animal cell technology experts from all over Europe together to share knowledge and network, our visual aesthetic now represents that ideal.

Please visit our new website and find out for yourself!
