Front End Engineering as a Roadmap to Biotech Process Development

Emerging biotechnologies need a rapid path to commercialization which requires forward planning for commercialization. At the same time, many of the people skilled in developing new technologies are not well versed in scale-up and commercial scale process technologies. The result can be a critical gap between what the researchers know and the design firms need to know when it comes time to scale up. Using front end engineering early in the process to project what the commercial scale plant will be helps guide research and pilot work toward practical commercial scale operations.

This talk will highlight the process for projecting the process forward and what the outcome of such engineering work should include.
