How to Manage Clean Room Cost - Quality and Environmental Sustainability without compromises  

Maintaining and improving GMP compliance of cleanroom manufacturing operations is a mandatory requirement for all pharmaceutical manufacturers. In addition, cost and sustainability of manufacturing operations are an increasing focus, especially given the high-energy consumption in most cleanrooms. In this talk, it will be shown how quality, efficiency and costs are related and how most manufacturing clean rooms can be improved so that they deliver high quality environments, safely and efficiently, with significant cost reduction. It will include case studies from India and other regions, where pharmaceutical manufacturers have successfully improved their cleanroom operations in both sterile and non-sterile production.
