  • Publication number: 20220016031
    Abstract: A process for preparing and isolating pharmaceutical active ingredient particles having a particle size of between about 0.1 and 30 microns, wherein a slurry comprising the active ingredient and one or more pharmaceutically acceptable excipients is fed into a thin film evaporator under suitable conditions for less than 10 minutes sufficient to generate solid matrix particles comprising active ingredient and one or more excipients, wherein the particles have less than 5% residual solvent.
    Type: Application

  • Publication number: 20200342147
    Abstract: One example includes a method for generating a solar farm design. Geographic map data defines geographic features and boundaries of a geographic region. A solar panel block library that stores virtual solar panel block types is accessed. Each of the virtual solar panel block types corresponds to a design of a respective solar panel block that includes solar panels, an inverter, and an access road, and each virtual solar panel block type includes predetermined dimensions and a predefined output power rating. An array of a virtual solar panel block type to fit within the geographic features and boundaries of the geographic region on the map is generated based on the dimensions of each of the virtual solar panel blocks in the array. The array is iteratively modified to optimize a criterion of the solar farm design, and the design is stored in a memory for subsequent solar farm installation.
