Biopharma Recycling Program

Biopharma Recycling Program

This first-of-its-kind Biopharma Recycling Program recycles single-use product waste into industrial-grade plastic lumber products. Even when classified as biohazardous, plastic biopharma waste can be safely recycled into traceable plastic products.

One commercially operating biopharma facility is estimated to produce more than 150 tons of used product material per year. That's enough material to fill seven 45-foot tractor trailers. Since the program's inception in 2015, we have recycled over 6,000 metric tonnes of biopharma waste.

We are continually working to evolve recycling for the industry and will be expanding our offerings as new technologies emerge.
