Opening Ceremony of the 'Joint Laboratory for Continuous Reactor Technology' at Fudan University (China)

June 29th 2018, Shanghai, China

On June 29th 2018, Chemtrix BV & Shenzhen E-zheng Technology Co. Ltd. opened their Joint Laboratory for Continuous Reactor Technology at the Center for Chiral Molecular Catalysis & Synthesis, Fudan University (Shanghai, China).


Hosting the unveiling & signing Ceremony was Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, Professor Fen-er Chen (Department of Chemistry, Fudan University, China).  In attendance was the CEO of Chemtrix BV, Dr. Charlotte Wiles (The Netherlands), the Deputy General Manager of Shenzhen E-zheng Technology Co., Ltd., Mrs. Zhong Ming (China) & the Executive Director of the Technical Joint Lab Dr. Cheng Dang (Department of Chemistry, Fudan University, China).


During the opening Ceremony, Academician Prof. Chen emphasized the global developments made in the area of continuous flow technology for industrial production, with proven characteristics of safety, efficiency, automation & sustainable production.  Prof. Chen said that the creation of this joint laboratory has the aim of strengthening & improving the level of continuous flow pharmaceutical process research & development in China.  The main goal is to bring this technology & its advantages to Domestic pharmaceutical manufacturers.  On concluding, Prof. Chen showed his enthusiasm for this emerging technology & stated that he looks forward to promoting very soon the first examples of his pharmaceutical methods developed in flow & their up-scaling potential.

Dr. Cheng Dang, the Director of the Joint Lab, gave a short introduction to the joint lab & said that the Team, led & supervised by Academician Chen, is convinced of the use of flow technology for the efficient & sustainable manufacture of pharmaceuticals - targeting ‘end-to-end’ process development.  Dr. Dang is looking forward to turning traditional batch processes into continuous ones, together with representatives from the Domestic pharmaceutical industry. 

On behalf of Chemtrix, Dr. Charlotte Wiles expressed her honour & enthusiasm to cooperate with Prof. Chen & his Team for the Joint Laboratory for Continuous Reactor Technology.  Chemtrix looks forward to supporting Fudan University as they train & cultivate talented researchers in this emerging technology, taking their process developments through to safe, efficient & sustainable local manufacturing facilities.  She also thanked E-zheng Technology for their on-going efforts in setting up the cooperation & high quality local commercial & technical support. 


Mrs. Zhong Ming, Deputy Director of E-zheng Technology, expressed her gratitude to Academician Chen for providing the opportunity to set up the Joint Laboratory for Continuous Reactor Technology at Fudan University.  This facility gives opportunity for researchers & visitors to gain experience in this fast-developing technique.  Since 2012, E-zheng Technology has been committed to the promotion of Continuous Flow Technology in China. 


The event closed with official signing of the cooperation agreement & cutting of the ribbon to open the Joint Laboratory – marking a significant step forward in China's continuous flow technology story & a further step towards China's Industrialization 4.0 era.
