Title: Targeting clean water with new technology

Pharma can overcome quality challenges by using synergistic techniques to optimize water management. Clean water touches every aspect of the pharmaceutical process. It acts as a solvent, excipient and reagent in the production of safe, effective medicines, and underpins the development of nutraceuticals, botanicals, enzymes and personal care products. However, water quality is changing on a global scale as new chemical and biological impurities are introduced into water supplies from various sources, including industry, health care and agriculture. Perhaps surprisingly, commonly used treatment processes are adding to this problem, with water chemistry becoming more complex as chemistry-based treatment processes are more widely implemented. As industrial water use continues to rise along with rapid and ongoing industrialization worldwide, the chemical complexity of water is set to increase. Staying abreast of the ever-changing array of contaminants found in waterways and municipal supplies is therefore an evolving challenge in drug discovery, development and manufacture. It requires innovative approaches to water management — and new technologies for efficient water purification.
