Process development activities are aimed at optimizing the performance of existing manufacturing processes without compromising on product quality, reproducibility and consistency. Process development trials require very close interaction between the personnel involved in synthetic organic chemistry, process technology and chemical engineering.
Process development activities also assist in our efforts towards carrying out Green Chemistry which encourage selection of less hazardous chemicals and optimal resource utilization such that the effect on the environment is minimal. Improving yields, approving new suppliers, lab trials, kilo-lab and pilot plant scale-up studies along with the implementation of new technologies and innovative ideas help in increasing the profitability and sustainability of our operations.
The key criteria for process development are:
- Greener synthesis & decreased pollution.
- Molecular efficiency
- Improved yields
- Safer raw materials
- Less hazardous chemistry
- Better sustainability
