DSM project on carbon dioxide footprint reduction receives European Outsourcing Awards

pSM Pharmaceutical Products, the custom manufacturing organization of Royal DSM NV, is pleased to announce that their submission for the European Outsourcing Awards, organized by Via Media UK Ltd, entitled "Achieving substantial carbon dioxide footprint reduction for the scale up of a drug intermediate," was an award recipient at the 6th October ceremony held in Paris, France.  

DSM applied their InnoSyn™ route scouting services to launch a collaborative research program to identify a faster route for a drug intermediate using (bio)catalytic processes with the same level of reliability and quality, yet with a reduced carbon footprint of over fifty percent. The new process resulted also in shorter cycle times due to fewer steps in the process.

Andre de Vries, Ph.D., Competence Manager for Homogeneous Catalysis at DSM, commented, "This project involved scientists covering all relevant areas of organic process development, including biocatalysis and homogeneous catalysis. From the 10 new identified routes, all less than 5 steps, the route combining a biocatalytic and a metal-catalyzed step showed to be most sustainable. In this way, DSM as the contract manufacturer is contributing to extending the life cycle of the customer's product using innovation to decrease the eco footprint."

Dr. Kevin Robinson, Editorial Director, Pharma magazine and judging coordinator, stated: "The European Outsourcing Awards judging panel is selected to give an impartial, professional and wide-ranging level of expertise and is assembled exclusively from leading healthcare organisations and top business school academics." DSM was nominated under the categories of Most Improved Process, Plant or Facility, which focuses on expertise and innovation to meet customer requirements for time-to-market, and Best Contract Manufacturing Project, which focuses on production and commercial manufacturing innovation, cost-effectiveness and regulatory compliance.

Organized by Via Media UK Ltd in conjunction with Via Connect, a provider of various forums and events to the bio/pharmaceutical, nutraceutical and personal care industries, the European Outsourcing Awards gala dinner was held in Paris, France, during the week of the CPhI Worldwide trade event.
