DSM Sinochem Pharmaceuticals to build a multi-product plant in China

ZIBO, CHINA: DSM Sinochem Pharmaceuticals (DSP) plan to build a multi-product plant in China. This investment allows DSP to further drive its growth in China and fit well in the company strategy of strengthening the beta-lactam business and broadening DSP’s portfolio of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API).

The new plant will use DSP’s proprietary enzymatic biotechnology. By using biotechnology DSP is able to reduce energy consumption by 66 per cent, produce 90 per cent less waste and have 50 per cent less emissions to air, compared to the chemical process. This is a big step to make pharmaceutical products more environmentally sustainable.

The facility is planned to start operating in early 2013, to serve both the Chinese and the export market.

“This investment perfectly fits in our strategy to strengthen our current SSCs business and broaden our product portfolio. Exactly two years after we have opened a similar facility for the enzymatic production of first generation Cephalosporins here in Zibo, this is the natural next step in rolling out the advantages of our enzymatic production processes for pharmaceutical AIs to next generation products,” said Hu Jian, Business Unit Director China, DSP.
