Concurrent Session: Meeting Increasing Sustainability Expectations within the Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Environment | Pharmaceutical manufacturing faces ever increasing demands to improve sustainability in the manufacturing environment all with an awareness of the social impact within the broader community. These presentations will provide detailed case studies that will outline the methodologies used to both improve environmental sustainability and to reduce costs and variability in the manufacturing processes. Michele Schio will present a case study for the improvement of an existing water-cooling system at a facility in Northern Italy using AI to monitor and model the water demands in order to improve control and minimize variations within the process. Blaine Krause will provide details of a case study at GSK using digitization of the processes to optimize energy usage and efficiency within their water systems. Lindsay Smart’s presentation will focus on the design and implementation of energy optimization for decarbonization at the concept stage of facility design to address not only current sustainability expectations but to anticipate future demands. Janssen Biologics will be giving a brief overview of their vaccines facility in Leiden, the Netherlands, and its success in addressing and winning the FOYA for Project Execution and Social Impact.
