Sanofi’s new manufacturing plant in Framingham, Massachusetts, will produce 80% less carbon dioxide emissions compared to the company’s first-generation facility and will reduce water and chemical usage by 91% and 94%, respectively, according to details released by the company.
The company’s new facility opened last month and uses continuous manufacturing, a process that promises to speed up drug development. It called it “one of the world’s first,” in the release.
Sanofi says the facility will connect research and development processes with production, which it says will speed up the time to market for new medication.
