Title: Enablers of the Successful Scale up of Innovative Process Technologies Involving Industrial Biotechnology: Implications and Challenges for Sustainable Operations

Speaker: Manjusha Thorpe,

The development of innovative process technologies is becoming increasingly important in the chemical industry. Furthermore, in response to the quest for more environmentally sustainable operations, new technologies often involve the replacement of conventional chemical processes with biotechnology processes. Companies will have an advantage in achieving competitive operations in shorter timeframes if they have the ability to overcome the challenges faced when scaling up new process technologies.

Initial research has been carried out using data from interviews conducted with members of five multi-national companies operating in the processing industry. The initial research confirmed the importance of various types of knowledge in achieving successful scale up. However, there were deficits. In particular, the lack of a formalised process including the identification, development, utilisation, capture and transfer of the knowledge that is critical for scale up. The interview data also revealed additional factors that appear critical in determining scale up performance. These include articulation of the tradeoffs between batch and continuous processing during scale up and the uniqueness of scaling up industrial biotechnology processes.
Further research is underway and this research focuses on understanding the problems encountered during scale up and solutions for overcoming these problems. In particular, the knowledge and skills that enable successful scale up are being investigated and the means of identifying knowledge gaps and knowledge sources is also being examined.

A case study methodology is be used to carry out the investigation and, to a large extent, the data is being obtained from interviews. The interviews are being conducted with members of the R&D, process engineering, operations, project management and business functions of companies in order to obtain a number of perspectives on the scale up of processes. Furthermore, scale up is being investigated across the pharmaceutical, specialty chemicals, commodity chemicals, petrochemical and industrial biotechnology sectors of the process industry. This will allow comparisons to be made across sectors and in particular, will allow lessons learned to be applied to the more nascent industrial biotechnology processes.
The research is expected to result in a knowledge map that describes the knowledge required for the successful scale up of a range of process technologies. In addition, mitigation methods for overcoming the problems typically encountered in scale up will be provided. The map and methods are expected to assist companies in streamlining the scale up of new process technologies, in particular biotechnology processes. This can help in achieving more sustainable solutions to future global chemical requirements.

Manjusha Thorpe joined the Centre for Technology Management at the University of Cambridge in 2010. Manjusha studied both chemical engineering and Japanese as an undergraduate and before joining the University of Cambridge, Manjusha worked in industry for 14 years in Australia, Indonesia and Singapore. One of Manjusha's more recent achievements was successfully starting up and managing the Singapore operation of a global consulting company dedicated to benchmarking the competitiveness of capital projects executed by the oil, gas, mining, minerals, metals and processing industries.
