As the pharmaceutical industry works to develop more sustainable processes for large-scale drug manufacturing, companies are coming to terms with the fact that there is no one-size-fits-all approach. In fact, the key to reducing CO2 emissions and recycling higher volumes of solvent is often to engineer specialized approaches with flexible technologies that can be adapted for different products. We have developed the Vision ZERO Initiative as one arm of our improved sustainability mission, which seeks to reduce emissions, water consumption, waste, and work incidents.
Lonza Small Molecules has implemented customized plans for each client to reduce wastewater incineration and carbon emissions. These wastewater incineration and solvent recovery initiatives have already resulted in an annual carbon emissions reduction equivalent to the emissions of 54,000 economy flights from London to New York.
