At the next EIPG webinar to be held on Wednesday 9th November at 17.00 CET (16.00 GMT) in conjunction with PIER and University College Cork, Bengt Mattson will present the impact of pharmaceuticals on the environment and what industrial pharmacists can do to help decrease the potential environmental impact.

Understandable concerns have been expressed regarding the presence of pharmaceuticals in the environment. Environmental protection contributes to safeguarding the health and safety of future generations. However, medicines play a critical role in ensuring a high level of public health.

Bengt has been the co-chair of the European industry’s Inter-Associations Task Force on Pharmaceuticals in the Environment for the past 8 years. He will discuss R&D initiatives, which influence green manufacturing and design safe, rational and effective use of medicinal products and the correct disposal of any unused or expired medicines.

The competence of industrial pharmacists in participating in these initiatives will be discussed.
