One of the major trends in pharmaceutical manufacturing today is the introduction of continuous processing.
Whilst the theoretical advantages of changing from batch to continuous are known - reduced plant size, reduced energy usage, improved quality, improved containment, and shorter processing times - the practicalities of implementation remain a barrier to change.
NEPIC has gathered expertise from technology companies, pharmaceutical manufacturers and Universities through this one day event to offer:
• Practical advice for continuous process introduction
• Explain the potential advantages
• And address the perceived barriers
NB. Please note the change of venue.
