Flamma once again expands its Continuous Flow capabilities in Italy
Chignolo D’Isola, Bergamo, Italy – September 19, 2023 – The Flamma Group (“Flamma”), a global, fully integrated company producing and commercializing small molecule Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) for the life science industry as well as a preeminent Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) of New Chemical Entities (NCEs) and late stage intermediates for the Innovator Companies, announced the another addition to its Continuous Flow capabilities with the addition of a Corning G4 Microreactor.
The installation of a Corning G4 Microreactor will bring significant advantages for flow production including improved selectivity and safety allowing production using a reduced footprint.
“This new technology will provide the ability to work at higher pressures more easily than utilizing a batch process. We will also look to take advantage of more green processes that include recycling,” said Massimo Verzini, Flamma’s Head of Global R&D.
“Safety of operations is always a priority for Flamma. The addition of Continuous Flow Technology enables us to safely manage energetic reactions while maintaining tight control of product quality as well as process yield.”
In July 2023, Flamma released news regarding the impending installation of a new suite of equipment from Microinnova, a leader in modular Continuous Flow systems. The addition of the Corning G4 micro-reactor along with the MicroInnova system will provide a flow plant that can achieve conditions to 16 bar, up to 145°C, up to 30 L/hour and a 50 MT/year (depending on the process). Installation is underway with qualification batches set for February 2024.
We anticipate that customers will embrace this new technology and Flamma’s team will provide quotations that consider this as an option when looking over customer RFPs.
