TCE and British Salt win big at pharmaceutical exhibition CPhI
Last month, some of the team jetted off to Barcelona for the Convention on Pharmaceutical Ingredients (CPhI). The biggest event in the pharmaceutical industry felt like the prime location to announce British Salt’s latest innovation, Medi-Salt, as well as connecting with customers old and new. The team enjoyed the opportunity to network with industry leaders, understand their needs and discuss how and where our products could add value.
British Salt’s latest innovation: Medi-Salt
The exhibition was an opportunity for us to announce the latest innovation from British Salt. We’ve been supplying the global pharmaceutical sector with high purity sodium bicarbonate for decades and our latest product will do just that. Medi-Salt is a new and unique pharmaceutical salt that can be used in treatments that will improve the lives of millions of people across the world, including:
- Haemodialysis treatments
- Oral rehydration salts
- IV solutions
- Eye drops
- Personal care products
We are building the UK’s first pharmaceutical salt production plant right now and this state-of-the-art facility is set to produce 70,000 tonnes of pharmaceutical grade salt a year. From 2024 we will be able to supply EP/USP salt for use as an API or excipient. Medi-Salt is a more free flowing pharmaceutical salt which is easier to handle and process and will be available in a range of different size bags and FIBCs.
Our award-winning carbon capture and utilisation plant
During CPhI we were also pleased to receive an award from Accord Healthcare, the Supplier: Think Green, Act Green award, for our carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) plant. The plant, which opened back in 2021, was the first of its kind in the UK, and in the past two years has already achieved so much.
It was an honour to receive this award from Accord Healthcare who we have worked with now for a number of years and were one of our first pharmaceutical customers. Sales and Marketing Director Angus Vause accepted the award from director of procurement Tony Watson on the day:
“It was an honour to accept this award from Accord Healthcare and be recognised for our work on our own net zero journey. We greatly admire Accord’s work in promoting sustainable, UK-based suppliers and we look forward to continuing to work together in the future.”
