Workshop Theme: Effectively Managing Reactive Chemistry Risks

Multidisciplinary product/Process R&D and Manufacturing Process Design Teams dealing with chemical synthesis processes face many challenges related to process chemistry, process economics, process design/safety, schedule, and product market uncertainty on the road to commercializing chemical products (individual chemical or polymer entities or formulated products).

Presenters in this session will continue to address questions concerning inherently safer design (how to Minimize, Moderate, Substitute & Simplify the process) and to answer some of the 20 questions listed in the table at the end of this flyer for managing Reactive Chemistries to ensure that chemical research & development/process design/ manufacturing teams involved with chemical synthesis processes:

  • Ask the RIGHT Questions at the RIGHT TIMES,
  • Have the RIGHT data to answer the questions,
  • Have the RIGHT people with the appropriate competencies to analyze/interpret/use the data for making good risk decisions.
