Circular Strategies in the Life Science Industry

by PQE Group & Techniconsult Group

Circularity and life cycle assessment are foundational pillars of sustainability within the pharmaceutical industry, essential for minimizing our environmental impact. This holistic approach demands a thorough examination of every stage in the life cycle of goods and materials, from raw material extraction to disposal or recycling. By embracing circularity, we aim to optimize resource use, reduce waste, and mitigate our footprint on the planet. 

To effectively implement circularity principles, we must first understand the intricate web of manufacturing processes and their environmental repercussions. This includes considering inbound and outbound materials and goods, as well as solid, liquid, and gaseous effluents. Auxiliary services and functions, such as those within the supply chain and quality controls, also play a crucial role in the circularity equation.
