- General applicability for API containing streams
- Selective removal of multiple API’s (99,99999%)
- No bromates
- No AOX
We are working on multiple solutions to reduce the emerging challenge of pharmaceuticals in the environment. A new installation is now ready to remove 23 API’s out of the process streams of a multinational pharmaceutical company. The site investigated is located in Europe and is one of the major pharma formulation sites for different medicines.
In this customer case, the Inopsys solution consists of a technology train that comprises a physico-chemical pretreatment, ozonolysis , and specific adsorption. This configuration resulted in the highest selectivity and lowest energy demand to treat the API containing sidestream, compared to a mono technology like membranes or electro-oxidation.
The developed solution is general applicability for all API containing streams, efficient due to the synergy between different technologies, significant increase in efficiency versus standard AOP (including electro oxidation), and provided evidence that these combined technologies
are energy efficient, allow for compact treatment, avoid the formation of bromates and remove AOX (inherently formed by all oxidation methods) and remove multiple API’s selectively (99,99999%).
