Piloting cascaded continuous flow synthesis for the pharmaceutical industry

Objective

PICASCO aims to deliver the commercial proof of concept of a novel endto-
end flow manufacturing and a novel corresponding compact flow mini
plant. This is performed through the first continuous 4-step solvent-free
flow manufacturing of a pharmaceutically relevant API compound at an
industrial scale. Currently applied batch manufacturing techniques leave
much room for improved quality, efficiency, cost-effectiveness and
environmental friendliness. Flow multi-step manufacturing can address all
these issues simultaneously, but to date has not been brought to an
industrially useful scale. PICASCO sets out to scale this final barrier.
