Topical 5: Green Engineering and Sustainability in the Pharmaceutical Industry (T5)

#290 - Green Separations In the Pharmaceutical Industry (T5008)
This session will provide a forum for the discussion of green separations used in the pharmaceutical industry from research to manufacturing. Papers discussing recent advances, fundamentals, and industrial applications are welcome at the session. Topics include design, operation, and optimization of separation technologies, highly-selective separation methods such as ionic liquids, membrane separation, supercritical fluid extraction and chromatography, etc., case studies and industrial applications including optimization of traditional separation technologies to minimize environmental impact such as solvent replacement, and emerging trends and future directions in green separation in the pharmaceutical industry.
