Responsible Single-Use Biopharmaceutical Processing

Pharmaceutical companies are continuously streamlining processes to reduce their carbon footprint. The development of single-use biopharmaceutical processing was a step in the right direction, reducing the amount of water, chemicals, and energy required for cleaning validation.

Now, pharmaceutical companies are taking efficiency a step further.  In recent years, Biogen, Genentech, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, and Patheon signed the American Business Act on Climate Pledge declaring their goals.  The BioXstream™ supports these ongoing initiatives, reducing your carbon footprint, energy and waste to landfill.

  • Reduction in CO2-heavy treatment services, including incineration
  • Reduction in waste transportation volume
  • Allows your single-use disposables to be recycled or re-purposed

Responsible Single-Use Biopharmaceutical Processing

The PRI BioxStream System helps green biopharma initiatives by using single-use waste treatment

Current Treatment & Disposal Process: Wasteful and Inefficient

The current process is costly, wasteful and bad for the environment.  Currently, biopharmaceutical manufacturing companies pay haul-away service companies to treat the waste.  These treatment companies process the waste by incineration, hazardous landfill or autoclave, and send the material to landfill. These disposal methods do not support the ongoing Green Biopharma Initiatives.

Take a look at the wasteful and inefficient treatment & Disposal process currently being used.

BioXstream™: A Greener, Sustainable Process

The BioXstream™ offers a sustainable solution for the treatment of single-use bioprocessing waste.  The treatment process uses steam, and reduces overall density footprint by 80%, rendering treated material as common municipal waste, safe for recycling and reuse.

Versatile Treatment Solution

The BioXstream™ handles many types of regulated medical waste, including single-use disposables, roller bottles, red bag waste and sharps containers.
