A wave of redesign to protect against water scarcity

newsMay 3, 2022 | News | Phorum : Sustainability


BioPhorum Sustainability is supporting an industry collaboration on the reduction of water usage – exploring how to close the technology and mindset gaps for cleaning and reusing water in bioprocessing. 

Water mass of process operations is between 70-80% in new processes using single-use technology, and approximately 90% for legacy processes as revealed in initial PMI benchmarking studies. 

With increasing water scarcity posing a risk to business continuity, as potential water restrictions are likely in regions where there are bioprocessing facilities, the industry can make a significant and positive contribution to water reduction by redesigning both facilities and processes.
