Chemistry for a Greener World
TARGETING BETTER PROCESSES
KelAda Pharmachem is dedicated to developing “better processes” for the pharmaceutical and biotech industries. By “better processes” we mean processes which:
are more cost-effective than current manufacturing routes
are greener than traditional processes – i.e. have less environmental impact
utilize previously ignored, cheap and abundant natural sources
valorize waste/side streams from industrial (e.g. agrifood) processes
can be easily “platformed” to make novel compounds for bioactivity
WHO WE ARE
KelAda is based in Ireland and is situated at the nexus of a global pharmaceutical manufacturing hub (with 24 of the world’s top 25 pharma companies having significant operations on the island), and a world-renowned agri-food technology sector (with major international players headquartered in Ireland). Thus, our people and cutting-edge concepts are drawn from the rich pool of talent and resources available on KelAda’s doorstep.
EXCELLENCE IN COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH
KelAda operates on a collaborative “Research Alliance”/Fee-for-service basis – whereby our partners/clients can leverage our medicinal and process chemistry expertise, technologies and platforms to have specific solutions developed for their needs. Our partners/clients include companies from global pharma & biotech and agrifood companies.
KelAda’s mission is to be a catalyst for the integration of green technologies into the manufacture of pharmaceutical ingredients. This mission is underpinned by our focus on performing our own in-house world-class research and collaborating with other world-class researchers. We also have an active program of technology identification whereby we identify, in-license and develop novel chemistry into scalable processes which can then be utilized by major pharmaceutical and fine-chemical players.
