AspenONE software accelerates process development and reduces manufacturing costs

Aspen Technology has released version 7.1 of AspenONE software to help chemists and engineers accelerate batch process development and reduce manufacturing costs.

Aspen Technology has released version 7.1 of AspenONE software to help chemists and engineers accelerate batch process development and reduce manufacturing costs.

New features include a process development console and GUI enhancements that simplify batch modelling processes, ensuring efficient and error-free transfer from lab to pilot to manufacturing. Version 7.1 also accelerates process development through improved solubility and reaction modelling integrated with batch distillation.

Dr Ugo Cocchini, principal process engineer and team leader at GlaxoSmithKline, a user of the software, said: "AspenONE V7 offers us at GSK a step-change in our modelling and design methods. In particular, the introduction of Aspen Reaction Modeller and the NRTL-SAC thermo method for modelling separation processes will make a significant difference for our way to approach process design."

Version 7.1 supports accelerated product development through faster solvent screening; improved yield and reduced waste costs by enabling chemists and chemical engineers to examine more process options in less time and process selection to minimise emissions and support environmental compliance reporting.

Other key benefits include reduced time to create pilot plant batch records by automating the generation of the batch record from the master recipe and a more robust process delivered to manufacturing through a more thorough technology transfer process.
