Increasing yield and safety of a nitration process

Find out how our customers take advantage of our services to develop, optimize and secure their chemical, biochemical and bio-based processes.

Challenge

  • 40-year old nitration process for the production of an Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient

  • Highly complex process with low selectivity

  • Need to enhance competitiveness and improve safety

Methods

  • Analysis of existing performances and identification of the reaction pathway

  • Predictive simulations coupling mass & heat transfer

  • Reduction of impurity formation by optimizing the sequence of reactants loading and coupling the reaction with distillation

Achievements 

  • Yield enhanced by a factor 4

  • Safety largely improved by decreasing the reactor size (using a continuous tubular reactor)
