Capabilities for the manufacturing of fine chemicals


Production facilities

Novasep operates multipurpose production workshops and plants from pilot scale to commercial scale.

Novasep Manufacturing Workshop

We can deliver volumes from kilogram to thousands of tons per year.

Reactions can be operated from -60°C up to 250°C and under a pressure of up to 6 bars for hydrogenation, carbonylation and other reactions involving a gas.

Our facilities are also equipped with off-gas and waste treatment on site or mutualized within a local chemical platform for a responsible and cost-effective treatment of wastes.

Specific equipment

Novasep is a world leader in hazardous chemistry as well as industrial scale chromatography. We also offer a wide range of organic chemistry at large scale (coupling reactions, bromination,  azide chemistry, diborane chemistry, diazomethane chemistry, oxidation, nitration, carbonylation, CS2 chemistry, low-temperature reactions, etc.).

 Our specific equipment includes multi-purpose plants equipped to run a large range of hazardous chemistries including: azide chemistry to produce nitrogen rich compounds and a broad range of heterocycles; a gas dispersion agitator for high transfer rate in gas reactions; as well as ATEX T6 equipment for explosive gas and carbon disulfide. We are also equipped to use and produce odorous substances.
