Webinar: Sustainability by Design for Biomanufacturing

Webinar: Sustainability by Design for Biomanufacturing
  • Date From 24th November 2022
  • Date To 24th November 2022
  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 10:00 GMT. Duration: 1 hour.


Sustainability starts in design with factors such as the manufacturing approach, material selection, cleanroom grading, segregation strategy and the utility design philosophy. Key decisions made during the design of the facility can impact the size of the facility, the utility demand for the facility, water consumption and waste generation by the manufacturing operations; all of which have environmental impact considerations. Making the right decisions upfront is the key to a sustainable facility.
