Resource or Project Abstract

This project Flow Photochemistry - A GREEN technology with a bright future has allowed for the creation of new technologies that not only addresses environmental needs by reducing water & energy requirements , but also offers a chemical manufacturer substantial process cost savings and improved product yield outputs potentially leading to higher profit margins - a truly "WIN - WIN" situation! The new technology developed in this project makes photochemistry a far more attractive and GREEN tool since there is no longer a need for: i) high energy lamps; ii) water as a coolant is eliminated and iii) high atom efficiency is guaranteed thereby reducing waste by-products - All three of these achievements are in line with the policy outlined in flagship Europe 2020 and the EPA 2020 Vision document.

Supplementary Information About This Resource

In this section some supplementary information about this resource is outlined. Lineage information helps us to understand why this project was carried out, what policy or research requirements did it fulfil, etc. Lineage is important in understanding the rationale behind the carrying out of a project or the collection of a specific dataset etc. Links to web sites, applications, papers, etc are outlined to provide you with additional information or supplementary reading about the project or dataset

Lineage information about this project or dataset
The production of a chemical product, such as a typical pharmaceutical compound, relies to a large degree on chemical processes and involves the synthesis of the active ingredient as well as formulation and analytical quality control. All these individual processes produce significant amounts of waste and consume vast amounts of energy. As an example, it is estimated that between 25 and 100 kg of waste is generated for every 1 kg of active pharmaceutical product synthesised. In addition, the handling and storing of large quantities of hazardous materials requires strict safety precautions to avoid contamination of soil, water or air. In Europe, the flagship Europe 2020 Policy supports the shift towards a resource-efficient, low-carbon economy to achieve sustainable growth. The new technology developed in this project makes photochemistry a far more attractive, resource efficient, cost effective and GREEN tool.
