Latest investments: Bachem, Noyo, Greenway Health & more
Bachem and Novo Nordisk partner to find greener processes
The substances the two organisations are seeking to replace are hazardous and pose an environmental issue, and so the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) intends to restrict their use.
Bachem and Novo Nordisk's research aims to help them adapt current manufacturing technologies to reduce environmental impact and identify new opportunities for sustainable technologies, all of which can help reduce the harmful impacts of chemical processes. Studies so far have yielded substitutes that are much more ecologically friendly.
Noyo and Guardian Life expand partnership
Insurance API platform Noyo is expanding its partnership with The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America. This will enable Guardian Life to increase the scale of benefits administration platforms with which it offers integrations, allowing customers to reduce errors, simplify complex processes, and save time.
