New Release of aspenONE® Software Accelerates Process Development and Reduces Manufacturing Costs
BURLINGTON, Mass. April 7, 2009 — Aspen Technology, Inc. (OTC: AZPN.PK), a leading provider of software and services to the process industries, today introduced batch process development innovations for the pharmaceutical and specialty chemical industries. The innovations in the new 7.1 release of aspenONE software will help chemists and engineers to accelerate batch process development and reduce manufacturing costs.
Dr. Ugo Cocchini, Principal Process Engineer-Team Leader, GlaxoSmithKline
“aspenONE V7 offers us at GSK a step-change in our modeling and design methods. In particular, the introduction of Aspen Reaction Modeler and the NRTL-SAC thermo method for modeling separation processes will make a significant difference for our way to approach process design.”
Peter Crafts, Principal Process Engineer, AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals
“Solubility prediction is of strategic importance to AstraZeneca Process R&D. Our industry is increasingly challenged to deliver efficient and environmentally acceptable processes. Taking just a few physical property measurements and extrapolating them to predict temperature and composition effects on solubility is very desirable. The solubility modeling capability with NRTL-SAC in aspenONE V7 is one of the tools we use in our crystallisation process design workflow. aspenONE helps leverage solubility data to optimise solvent choice and processing conditions. We look forward to future developments from AspenTech that will further increase the areas of application.”
Jamie Hintlian, Vice President & General Manager, Pharmaceuticals, AspenTech
“One of the biggest challenges facing Pharmaceutical and Specialty Chemical companies is being able to deliver and share information from a lab environment into a pilot plant and ultimately full scale manufacturing in an efficient and error-free manner. With aspenONE V7, we are significantly streamlining the Process Development workflow. This is yet another key component in the execution of our strategy to extend our process industry innovation to Pharmaceuticals and other batch industries.”
Additional benefits to pharmaceutical and specialty chemical companies offered by the 7.1 release of aspenONE include:
