Pharma Pollution

In a world where the development of drugs and medication is critical to human health and disease prevention, the pharmaceutical industry is faced with on-going environmental challenges.

The risks associated with pharmaceutical ingredients in the environment are of great concern to many. Waste – or pharma pollution – can contaminate water and food sources when released during the manufacturing process. Pharma pollution can also be caused by the unsafe disposal and use of medications.

While the pharmaceutical industry is charged with reducing the risks associated with pharmaceuticals in the environment, the manufacturing process is not always fail-proof. Waste released into the environment through the manufacturing process must be closely managed and mitigated immediately.
