Novo Nordisk's API-US site in Clayton, NC is a new plant with an unprecedented ramp-up plan to ensure supply can meet the ever-growing market demand. Therefore, the need for an increase in process understanding and an increase in process optimizations is required to achieve this goal. A newly created BIO (bioprocess improvement and optimization) group has been created to tackle this head-on with industry-leading process modeling techniques. This talk will focus on a subset of the process modeling landscape, specifically flowsheet modeling using discrete-event simulation.
