Life Science and Biotech Hydrogenation

  August 08, 2016  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, 90 Minute Accredited Online Training
September 22, 2016 at 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. (ET)

Who Should Attend?
This online training is intended for engineers, scientists and managers in the fine and specialty chemical, life science, and biotech industries. Those involved in hydrogenation for new process and products will find the material very useful for laboratory experimentation, catalysts selection, scale up, plant operation, and the new developments in process intensification. There will be examples from pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals, vitamins, flavors and fragrances, cosmetics, other food products, and biotech. Professionals in the following areas will benefit greatly from this training:

  • R&D 
  • Process development
  • Laboratory experimentalists 
  • Pilot plant design and operation
  • Scale up and commercial operations 

Course Description
This 90-minute accredited course will cover Hydrogenation in the Life Science and Biotech Areas. After discussing the basics including safety and commonly used batch reactors, the course will move on to hydrogenation catalyst types and their scale up with examples. Material will conclude with regulatory impacts and examples, lab and pilot and plant tips, new developments including process intensification, and different approaches to biotech hydrogenation with examples.
Organized by: CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement
Invited Speakers:
John Super, President and Principle Consultant, Cobroko Solutions

John Super has been President and Principle Consultant of Cobroko Solutions since 2014. As a consultant, John identifies, recommends among alternative and assists to commercialize (scale up) new processes and products, among many other contributions for his clients. He specializes often in the area of hydrogenation, using his extensive knowledge and experience. John has been in the plants solving problems in many types of hydrogenators.

In 2014 he was elected as AIChE Fellow, recognizing his may professional accomplishments and contributions to the profession. He was a DuPont Engineering Fellow capping a 28 year career with DuPont in various roles. As a Senior DuPont Consultant and Engineering Fellow he practiced hydrogenation catalysis and scale up.

Since DuPont he was in senior leadership positions as VP of technology, process development, business development, and catalysis in emerging companies or Mid Cap ones and also KBR Technology Center Director for four years. In some of those positions managed either contract hydrogenation technology or scale up of novel hydrogenation processes.

John graduated from Lafayette College with BSChE and from University of Pennsylvania with MSChE (Chemical and Biochemical). He is a Professional Engineeer licensed in NJ, DE and TX.
