Interested in receiving in-depth information on cutting edge issues in the product stewardship field? PSI networking conference calls offer a carbon-free alternative to in-person workshops and meetings. PSI networking call participants can listen to expert presentations and ask questions on timely product stewardship issues from the comfort of the home or office.
Green chemistry is a research and engineering approach to designing chemical products and processes that reduce or eliminate hazardous substances. Pharmaceutical production uses chemistry to create compounds that have a specific effect on the body for the purpose of making us healthy. However, the production of some pharmaceutical drugs can involve the release of toxic substances during manufacturing, and others may impact the health of aquatic species once excreted. Learn what companies are doing to apply green chemistry principles to pharmaceutical drug development and manufacturing, and what policies and programs are intended to promote the design of drugs that can be excreted or disposed without environmental impact on aquatic and other species while still providing the intended health benefit for patients.
