METTLER TOLEDO ANNOUNCES GREEN PHARMACEUTICAL MANUFACTURING WEBINAR

in Manufacture

The webinar, entitled 'Building Green Pharmaceutical Manufacturing on a Foundation of PAT and QbD' will be held on Wednesday, November 3, 2010, and METTLER TOLEDO invites participation from interested parties.

In the webinar Paul Thomas, Senior Editor of Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, will present an overview of how the Process Analytical Technology (PAT) framework and Green Manufacturing initiatives complement and reinforce each other in the pursuit of research and manufacturing efficiency in the pharmaceutical industry.

Paul Thomas, Principle Scientist METTLER TOLEDO said, "Although the Quality by Design (QbD) and PAT efforts extend beyond the goal of safe and sustainable manufacturing, many of their objectives are in complete agreement with principles of Green Engineering, which emphasize maximizing efficiency; preventing waste and reducing energy consumption.
"Efficiency, quality and sustainability are key focuses for METTLER TOLEDO and our customers, and we are sure that this webinar will stimulate interesting discussion and ideas."

The webinar will incorporate case studies illustrating how the application of PAT and Green concepts are mutually beneficial in the development and operation of sustainable manufacturing processes. An interactive Q&A session at the conclusion of the seminar will allow participants to ask questions relevant to their individual applications.

In this webinar, Paul Thomas, Senior Editor of Pharmaceutical Manufacturing, will present an overview of how the Process Analytical Technology (PAT) Framework and Green Manufacturing initiatives complement and reinforce each other in the pursuit of research and manufacturing efficiency in the pharmaceutical industry. Case studies will also be presented to illustrate how the application of Process Analytical Technology (PAT) and Green concepts are mutually beneficial in the development and operation of sustainable manufacturing processes.

Although they began on different paths, the Principles of Green Chemistry and Engineering share plenty of common ground with the Quality by Design (QbD) and Process Analytical Technology (PAT) initiatives. Full process optimization must take a holistic view of health, safety, environment and economic concerns; and applying the principles of Quality by Design (QbD) and Process Analytical Technology (PAT) to the design of a robust pharmaceutical manufacturing process should result in improvements in process efficiency, process consistency, and product quality. The application of QbD builds a higher level of 
process understanding to facilitate the robust design and scale-up of optimized processes. The application of PAT enables the monitoring and control of manufacturing processes to minimize wasted time, energy and raw materials – assuring product quality while improving overall production throughput and profitability. Although the QbD and PAT efforts extend beyond a goal of safe and sustainable manufacturing, many of their objectives are in complete agreement with select principles of Green Engineering which emphasize maximizing efficiency, preventing waste (rather than treating it), and reduction of energy 
consumption.
