The two-day Powder Conference hosted by Romaco and MG2 in Bologna in
September 2016 was a huge success. Visitors from all over the world travelled
to Italy to learn more about processing and filling pharmaceutical powders.
More than a hundred powder specialists from all over the world gathered at the
Romaco and MG2 Powder Conference in Bologna/Italy on September 13 and 14,
Technologies for manufacturing, processing and dosing pharmaceutical
powders were spotlighted and discussed in more than twenty presentations and
several machine demonstrations. Visitors to the two-day event were invited to
the various sessions at Romaco S.r.l. and MG2, both based in the outskirts of
Bologna. Later in the evening, all the conference participants got together in the
vineyards of the Colli Bolognesi to review and exchange the day’s experiences in
a magnificent setting.
Romaco’s powder portfolio
Romaco Macofar is a supplier of solutions for aseptic and non-aseptic dosing of
pharmaceutical powders and an established player in the global pharmaceutical
markets since the seventies. The Romaco Macofar powder portfolio goes hand
in hand with Romaco Kilian tableting solutions as well as Romaco Innojet’s
expertise in the granulation and coating of pharmaceutical solids.
The part of the event which took place at Romaco was divided between a
theoretical examination of the various technologies for processing
pharmaceutical powders and a number of practical trials and demonstrations.
The presentation of the Macofar MicroMaxX 18 aseptic powder filling machine in
the new cleanroom at Romaco’s Bologna facility was undoubtedly one of the
high points. Since the installation of the GMP compliant cleanroom environment,
real products can now be tested there for the first time under real production
conditions. This is an enormous advantage when preparing a machine for use by
the customer or conducting test series.
