Technical Operation of a new Biotechnology Manufacturing Facility – Turning the Business Case into Reality

Abstract

The presentation titled “Technical Operation of a new Biotechnology Manufacturing Facility – Turning the Business Case into Reality” reviews the latest advancements in biological manufacturing, integrated controls, and energy management systems. Project drivers from concept of design to construction are reviewed along with explaining the new continuous product manufacturing concept. This presentation will provide insight from the design to start-up of the facility taking a phase gate approach through the construction process. Critical decision and influencing factors (energy savings, life cycle cost, and flexibility) will also be discussed. In conclusion, start-up and deployment an integrated approach to sustainable commissioning will also be reviewed.
