ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY FOR PHARMACEUTICAL PRODUCTION

 

Tecam in the pharmaceutical sector

Tecam provides environmental technology for the pharma sector. We provide solutions for the treatment of emissions from API and synthesis production and from water treatment basins at pharma production sites.

We can eliminate emissions from all chemical processes, from raw materials and the production of active ingredients to the final formulations of the finished product, as well as vents and emissions generated at wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) at pharmaceutical production sites.

The pharmaceutical sector and the environmental treatment

One of the problems encountered in the pharmaceutical sector is that several different chemical processes often coexist in the production of a single product while different products are produced in the same plant. Consequently, Tecam customises its emission treatment equipment by analysing all the possibilities of linked or independent chemical processes, in detail and in a personalised way, carried out at each production plant or laboratory.

Specific aspects of the pharma sector

To obtain all the necessary formulations, the pharmaceutical industry carries out complex processes under difficult conditions that need to be identified and controlled: LEL dilution, particle removal, as well as possible explosion relief due to mixing substances used in a multitude of processes to obtain active ingredients.

wastewater basins

Vents derived from wastewater treatment plants at pharma production sites

Wastewater is generated from production processes at pharmaceutical plants. Its is vital that the basins of the wastewater treatment plants (WWTP) get covered and that the vents generated are treated safely with environmental technology for emissions elimination.

At Tecam we provide technology for vents generated at pharmaceutical production sites’ wastewater treatment plants, such as Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTO).

Pollutants in the pharmaceutical sector

The pharmaceutical sector can count on several environmental technologies for emissions abatement, such as Regenearative Thermal Oxidizers (RTO), to eliminate their gaseous pollutants.

The pharmaceutical industry encounters its biggest emissions problems in the production stages of active ingredients. We encounter the highest air emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) during the storage and transport of solvents, the purging of nitrogen reactors, distillation and evaporation operations, product drying and equipment cleaning.

However, the pharmaceutical industry has to deal with many more pollutants, such as: acetone, halogenated compounds, ammonia, hydrochloric acid, hydrobromic acid, methanol, methylene chloride, Triton B, benzyl chloride, dichloromethane, toluene, ethanol, thionyl chloride, isopropanol, benzylamine, tetrahydrofuran, bromates and bromides, etc.

These pollutants can be grouped into three main blocks:

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)

Typically generated in reactors during product drying and in solvent storage tanks.

Dust and particles

Due to the handling of raw materials in the production processes of active ingredients, when taking samples and the transfer of intermediates.

Other emissions

From reactors containing organic and inorganic chemicals and odours produced by biological fermentation processes.
