Novasep to build world’s largest chromatography plant for the pharmaceutical industry

Novasep (Pompey, France; www.novasep.com) announces today an investment of €30 million to build in Europe what will be the world’s largest chromatography plant used for the production of a large volume commercial API (active pharmaceutical ingredient). The plant will be built on Novasep’s existing Mourenx site in France and will be operational and validated within 18 months. Both the development of an advanced purification process and the plant expansion within the challenging timescale are results of the sharp increase in the projected demand for a large volume, highly purified API. The €30-million investment follows two other significant global investments in 2012. The first is the opening of a new 2,000-m2 facility in Shanghai, China and the second is a €3-million investment to expand the Highly Potent API (HPAPI) manufacturing capabilities at the facility in Le Mans, France. Novasep has pioneered continuous chromatography for pharmaceutical manufacturing for more than 20 years. Its SMB (simulated moving bed) and Varicol continuous chromatography technologies are currently used for commercial scale production of several chiral APIs. The new plant, designed by a Novasep in-house engineering team, will include…
