Novel technology for industrial Pressing, Washing and Drying in manufacturing of specialty compounds

Project description

Innovative filter/dryer technology for specialty compounds

Current technologies used in the industrial process of filtration, separation and drying have high operational costs and production losses. The EU-funded PWD project will develop an innovative and highly advanced filter/dryer solution applicable in the production of specialty compounds (such as pharmaceutical ingredients/drugs, chemical ingredients/material). The PWD technology will rapidly replace current technology and increase operational productivity, flexibility and elasticity. The initial application focuses on the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, where it has already started receiving recognition and detected commercial interest from two large multinational corporations. The project aims to create significant value for its users’ awareness of the PWD technology among key stakeholders and potential clients/users.

Objective

The PWD project aims at the development of an innovative and highly-advanced filter/dryer (PWD filter/dryer or the PWD solution/technology) applicable for the industrial process of filtration, separation and drying in the manufacturing of specialty compounds (such as pharmaceutical ingredients/drugs, chemical ingredients/material etc.). The PWD technology is destined to swiftly replace the obsolete and inferior state-of-the-art (the Nutsche filter/dryer technology) and in the process to create significant value for its users by substantially increasing their operational productivity, flexibility and elasticity. The initial application targets pharmaceutical and chemical industries where we have already started receiving recognition and created commercial interest from two large multinational corporations (BAYER – the 5th largest pharmaceutical manufacturer in the world; Lanxess – the leading specialty chemicals company). The PWD project that is expected to last 24 months will allow us to replicate, on the industrial/commercial level, the highly encouraging results we have achieved with the PWD filter/dryer prototype. Moreover, the project will also allow us to create awareness of the PWD technology among key stakeholders and potential clients/users allowing for a swift commercial exploitation of the PWD project results within 3-6 months from the completion of the project.
