Flow chemistry

Development of cleaner and safer chemical processes by applying new technologies.

We at Esteve Química are always seeking to improve efficiency in our manufacturing processes to meet the ever-changing requirements of the market. Flow-chemistry -one of the activities we started in 2012- is a manufacturing technique that should provide some competitive edge regarding the traditional manufacturing processes. In fact, chemical transformations that would not be performed in a traditional manufacturing plant can be faced using flow chemistry, increasing in that way the reactions catalogue than can potentially be industrialized.

The main objective is trying to develop safer and more efficient processes, always with a view to future industrialization and manufacturing on a larger scale.

We are currently developing several processes using flow-chemistry and we have already finalized the development of 2 manufacturing processes using this technique. One of these processes has already been implemented at one of our sites in 2016.

Esteve Quimica has external collaborations with experienced partners that ensure we can cover whatever reaction development by flow chemistry.

Flow chemistry

We at Esteve Química participated on the project FLOW4HEALTH, which received financial support from the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness through the program "RETOS COLABORACIÓN" and was jointly financed with the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
