Name: Arne Van Mol
Alcami Site: Weert, Netherlands
What is your role?
I am a process engineer at the Alcami site in Weert, Netherlands. My role is to scale up manufacturing activities in accordance with environmental, health and safety (EH&S) and current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) requirements.
How long have you been with Alcami?
My first experience with Alcami was during my internship in 2017. I had the pleasure of supporting the scale up of an active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) starting from a 2L reactor (150 grams of API) to a 400L reactor (36 kilograms of API).
I rejoined the Alcami team in November 2018 as a full-time employee.
What is the most rewarding part of your job?
Working closely with R&D chemists in order to solve scale up obstacles and technical issues, such as emulsified phase separations or poor conversions, is the most satisfying part of the job.
