As the novel coronavirus spreads throughout the world, Aqua-Chem is working to support pharmaceutical and vaccine manufacturers across the globe as they race to find a cure. Right now our water is being used in the clinical trials of some of the leading COVID-19 vaccine candidates in the U.S. Even more exciting, we are proud to know that the water we produce is already being used to manufacture many of the first vaccines that will be shipping throughout North America in the coming months.
Water is the primary ingredient in many pharmaceuticals and is a critical, highly regulated ingredient in all vaccines, both as a diluent and as a carrier. Aqua-Chem’s President and CEO, Gary Edwards noted, “Aqua-Chem is deeply committed to supporting the fight against COVID-19. Our whole team knows that our equipment is on the frontlines of the fight against COVID-19. From our vapor Compression Distillers to Pure Steam Generators and Ambient WFI Membrane systems our whole team is committed to engineering and building systems that reliably deliver high-quality water for critical needs. “
As we all look forward to a “post-pandemic” world, Aqua-Chem is helping the pharmaceutical and health care industry combat the pandemic- and that’s a responsibility that we all take personally.
