Janssen Biologics, Energy Efficient Manufacturing Facility
This PM Group project was named Sustainability Category Winner in the ISPE (International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineers) 'Facility of the Year' Awards.

Janssen (formerly Centocor) Biologics established a new cell culture and purification site in Cork, Ireland. The facility has a 180kg-per-year biologic API capacity.

Amongst many other sustainable features, the facility utilizes a biomass (woodchip) boiler for base steam load.  When benchmarked against existing biotech facilities the facility was found to be 40% more energy-efficient and there was a 90% reduction in the carbon footprint versus fossil fuel.

PM Group and CRB Engineers designed and delivered this project (with Sisk acting as construction managers).
