BioSolve Workshop – Towards Sustainable Future Prologue

Biopharm Services are happy to announce our next web workshop.

This time, we are focusing on sustainability in our industry.

Increasingly we are asked around this topic. It is our great pleasure to announce Key Note speaker who can talk about sustainability. And the other speaker will speak about economic analysis of Intensified Process to accommodate wider audience.

As we think about sustainability, we are supporting National Trust’s ( planting tree initiative by donating 2 trees per Registered Attendees to offset some of our carbon emissions attending web workshop.

Please note in Live Q&A session, other attendees can see your signed in name and videos (if you switch on video). It works like conference rather than one way communication seminar. Once you register, you will receive further instructions.

There are few registrations available. Please select the right option for you. Also, we only accept registration forms from companies or academic institutes.

この度弊社Biopharm Serviceは再度Web Workshopを開催する運びとなりました。特に私たちの業界でSustainabilityの第一人者としてご存知の方も多いと思われますBill Flanagan氏がKey Note としてプレゼンテーションをシェアしてくれる予定です。
またこのウェビナーに参加された方一人につき弊社はNational Trustを通じ2本木を植樹させていただきます。こうすることにより少しでもCO2削減に繋げられればと思っております。

Key Note Speaker


Bill Flanagan, PhD, LCA-CP
Co-Founder & Director – Aspire Sustainability
Chair, Board of Directors – American Center for Life Cycle Assessment

Bill Flanagan is Co-Founder and Director of Aspire Sustainability, a consultancy focused on product life cycle assessment (LCA) and sustainability strategies.

He is also Chair, Board of Directors, of the American Center for Life Cycle Assessment (ACLCA), the professional membership and advocacy organization for LCA in North America.

From 2007-2017 Bill was Director of GE’s Ecoassessment Center of Excellence and was responsible for developing GE’s product sustainability strategies.

He has extensive leadership and teaming experience and has conducted LCA studies in a wide range of product categories including renewable energy (wind, solar, hydro), aircraft engines, biofuels, LED lighting, consumer appliances, batteries, locomotives, advanced materials, additive manufacturing, CNG and LNG technologies, biopharmaceutical processing, gas and steam turbines and generators, anesthesia gases and equipment, remanufacturing, medical equipment (CT, MR, digital x-ray, ultrasound), subsea oil and gas technologies, and packaging materials.

In 2014 Bill was awarded the Lifetime Individual LCA Leadership Award by the American Center for Life Cycle Assessment (ACLCA).

Bill graduated from Virginia Tech and received a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Connecticut. He is a certified life cycle assessment professional (LCA CP).

Title: Exploring Sustainability: LCA and Carbon Footprint

Abstract: Environmental Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a quantitative, science-based methodology for evaluating the environmental impacts of products and technologies.

An LCA typically includes all activities throughout the product or process life cycle from the extraction and processing of raw materials, production and processing activities, material and product transportation, product use, and disposal or reuse/recycling. Such a complete life cycle perspective is often named “cradle-to-grave”.

Among other uses, LCA can: identify opportunities to improve the environmental performance of products and technologies at various points in their life cycle; inform decisions (e.g., strategic planning, priority setting, and product or process design); support marketing efforts or stakeholder engagement; and more.

This presentation will provide a brief introduction to life cycle assessment and its application in several business-focused case studies.



Hani El-Sabbahy, PhD
Biopharmaceutical Purification Application Engineering Specialist, 3M

Dr. Hani El-Sabbahy is a Biopharmaceutical Purification Application Engineering Specialist.

As well as supporting customers by using 3M’s innovative products to improve their biopharmaceutical manufacturing processes, he has initiated and lead several research collaborations.

Hani has 15 years’ experience in bioprocess development.

Prior to joining 3M, he worked as a Senior Downstream Process Development Scientist at Actavis Biologics. Hani obtained his PhD from University College London (UCL).

His research at UCL focused on the design and characterisation of microfluidic devices for the downstream purification of microliter quantities of material.

Title: The Cost of Goods Impact of Novel Bioprocessing Solutions for Process Intensification

Abstract: Process intensification at its essence is about boosting productivity.

This productivity can be driven by: higher yields; better performing unit operations; and adopting single use technologies.

This presentation will explore how these factors impact costs of goods.
