    Your Solution is Needed: Project On Board for the Baltic Sea

    Let us reduce pharmaceutical residuals in the Baltic Sea region!

    We are happy to announce our latest project participation in partnership with Scanbalt from Estonia and the Lithuanian Biotechnology Association, in collaboration with Business Region Göteborg: Closing gaps: Techniques and solutions for reducing pharmaceutical residuals in the Baltic Sea region.

    • Do you have or know of a solution which reduces pharmaceutical residuals in healthcare waste? Tell us about it! Contact Caroline Charlier at

    The Baltic Sea is a shared space between nations and a complex ecosystem. Due to these factors, the space demands joint action to increase cross-sectorial collaboration and improve the environmental health of the Baltic Sea.

    From YOU, we are interested in knowing about existing techniques, solutions, processes, and waste management systems that can reduce pharmaceutical residuals from reaching the sea and waste water. That being said, we would like to stop the residuals as early in the process as possible – in everything from the production of pharmaceuticals and the handling of used drugs, to management systems at hospitals, city waste treatments, hospital cleaning and so on. 

    Please let us know about the solutions out there!

    About the project

    Pharmaceutical residuals from the healthcare sector and their environmental impact are key areas where technical, operative, and normative gaps between countries need to lessen.

    With this objective, the partners in this project will implement a multistakeholder horizontal collaboration during the next eight months. We will share and compare techniques and conditions for using innovative solutions – solutions that have the possibility of reducing pharmaceutical residual within the healthcare sector among the Baltic Sea countries.

    The project will contribute to reducing and closing existing gaps (technical and operative) among the involved actors. It will also share and compare techniques, conditions, and innovative solutions – all with the long-term goal of reducing impacts on the environment.
