Pharmaceutical and Life Science Industries
For the same reason. So.Sustainable answers for responsible business In the pharmaceutical and life science industries. This is where the pharmaceutical industry needs a committed. the goal is to improve the patients’ health and well-being. safety. Partners who can help the pharmaceutical and life science industries in balancing economic. . knowledgeable partner. transparency and knowledge. But getting there is not easy. and other human and economic resources may be consumed during the life cycle of a typical pharmaceutical product. pharmaceutical companies have a greater incentive than many others to visibly demonstrate their corporate respect for diverse cultures and the global environment. A partner who cares Achieving the goals of Responsible Care requires an innovative approach to business that focuses on information. inherently. water. Vast quantities of energy. corporate and social responsibility and profitability. ecologic. By following the approaches outlined in the Responsible Care® program – originally developed within the global chemical industry – the pharmaceutical and life science industries strive to continuously improve its performance in terms of quality. The development and production of medicines is costly. Partners who can offer not only the right products and systems for specific technological challenge. Partners who care deeply about the specific concerns and challenges of the life science industry. and social interests and their responsibilities. pharmaceutical companies must seek to achieve the highest standards in terms of product quality and safety. but who have a deep understanding of pharmaceutical manufacturing and production processes.
Furthermore. large amounts of valuable resources and money are wasted due to processes that create off-specification or low-yield products. water is subject to the requirements of current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP). and thus gain a better process understanding. Our innovative technologies and processes to optimize water use are the perfect answer to water cost. our solutions minimize waste in laboratory testing and prevent products from expiring in the warehouse. Off-specification production is also minimized to avoid unusable products. for example.Optimizing water use Water is the largest ingredient in almost every drug produced. With SIPAT. When used in the manufacturing of drugs or drug products. we offer a state-of-the-art software solution to support the application of Process Analytical Technology (PAT). For Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient (API) production. about 200 kilograms of solid waste are produced per ton of API. meet regulatory requirements and conserve natural resources. rinsing formulation). they improve the public perception of your company. the open system architecture for all demands in automation Minimizing waste In pharmaceutical and life science industries. Advantages at a glance • Increases energy efficiency through waste heat recovery solutions • Decreases laboratory testing efforts and reduces waste through software solutions for process optimization as right-first-time and online analysis • Prevents expired raw materials and products through tracking and tracing solutions that manage and control the entire supply chain • Reduces intermediate material and waste with efficient continuous manufacturing processes on the basis of TIA • Optimizes batch analysis through state-of-the-art chromatography • Reduces waste by making quality monitoring part of the process control loop with SIPAT – for right-first-time manufacturing . including solvents and other toxic organics that are used in production. scarcity and strict regulations. whether or not the product stays in the final product (for example. while improving efficiency and reducing waste disposal costs • Recover cooling water in buildings • Reduce water consumption through optimized processes on the basis of Totally Integrated Automation (TIA). Our unique and comprehensive portfolio enables the industry to avoid waste in inefficient clinical batch production and batch-to-batch variations. At the same time. They offer cost-saving techniques that enhance the reliability and performance of water systems. And they help to manage the three main forces behind water conservation in the industry: reduce operating costs. Advantages at a glance • Significantly reduce water consumption through plant optimization • Ensure consistent processes and production by meeting highest water quality requirements • Meet ever increasing industrial wastewater regulations.
reduce the energy consumption of the HVAC technology systems. pumps and compressors of up to 60–70 percent with choke controls. In the pharmaceutical and life science industries heating. Advantages at a glance • Optimize energy efficiency in plants and processes with software solutions for integrated life cycle management • Increase the energy efficiency of buildings with intelligent and integrated building and room automation • Manage utilities to save energy • Lower power loss by 40 percent compared to standard motors with energy-saving motors • Enable energy savings in fans. Sensors and monitoring solutions. air-conditioning and cooling (HVAC) technology ranks among the top energy consumers. We support our customers in realizing energy-efficient building blueprints and with designing processes to save energy as well as reduce waste and emissions. electric drives and frequency converters • Reduce lead time and energy concurrently with integrated solutions on the basis of Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) • Optimize the use of energy and reduce energy costs by up to 20 percent with intelligent power management systems . especially for the laboratories and clean rooms of the production environment.Maximizing energy efficiency Buildings consume 40 percent of the world‘s energy and are responsible for 21 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. Our intelligent solutions help companies maintain the controlled ambient conditions that are crucial to product quality and. ventilation. for example. at the same time. can be used to identify sources of energy loss and inefficient assets – in order to increase asset utilization.
perfect processes and product quality. We’ve made the three areas of sustainable development – environment. we offer the expertise of a global technology leader and the industry know-how accumulated through decades of successful partnership with our customers – in the pharmaceutical industry and beyond. we’re fostering our own employees and striving to be good citizens in all the communities in which we are active. business and society – the cornerstone of all our activities.A sound approach to sustainability Sustainability these days is a buzzword used in many different contexts with many different connotations. But what does it mean? We at Siemens don’t just talk about sustainability. We can afford to listen to our customers’ questions first. And in the area of society. This multi-disciplinary. In the area of business. the pharmaceutical industry can operate profitably. Our technologies and solutions contribute to long-term sustainability – through plant and process optimization. In the area of the environment. our understanding of sustainability is closely linked to our company values – responsibility. because we do not have simply one answer to everything. the pharmaceutical industry can address current and future challenges. . excellence and innovation. And we can afford to think in the long term. better use of resources. we’re focusing on long-term value creation. to develop innovative technologies that help ensure the future viability of modern civilization – this has always been our vision and our challenge. With our solutions for sustainability. Today. we’re providing innovative products and solutions to improve both our own ecobalance and those of our customers and suppliers. to capture leading positions in the markets of tomorrow. multi-facetted pool of knowledge is probably one of our biggest assets. To achieve excellence. As our history shows. By utilizing our portfolio and our expertise. create a healthy margin and improve its competitiveness.
