JANSSEN PHARMACEUTICA

 
  • Zinc recuperation
  • Water purification
  • BBAE (Belgian Business Award for the Environment)

Our very first project was in collaboration with Janssen Pharmaceutica and was named 'plant-on-a-truck'. This mobile and modular unit made it possible for the company to purify a complex sidestream on-site. Which more specifically means we purify the water for biological treatment and in addition we recover an important catalyst. For the production of Invokana® (canagliflozine) medicine for example, we recover Zinc.

A significant amount of unnecessary waste has already been avoided, thanks to this project. In fact, per ton of water, 1 ton less CO2 is emitted by implementation of this solution. The recovered Zinc is reused by the company Nyrstar as raw material in the Zinc production process.
