Reducing Emissions from Antibiotic Production

  11 February 2020

Antibiotics in the environment increase the risk of promoting antimicrobial resistanceIn order to prevent the manufacturing process of antibiotics from contributing to antimicrobial resistance, the active pharmaceutical ingredients need to be retained in the production facility or deactivated before liquid or solid waste streams can enter the environment.  Reducing Emissions from Antibiotics Production requires all stakeholders to transparently live up to the already existing commitments and mutually supported objectives to enable better regulation and incentives.  Acknowledging this fundamental requirement as a shared objective in a broad stakeholder dialogue has been the main outcome of the project REAP. Lastly, the collaboration between public and private stakeholders and the inclusion of independent experts and scientists as well as civil society is essential to ensure that solutions are holistic, fit for purpose and mutually accepted.
