In the pharmaceutical industry, a large amount of water is used and wasted by its very nature. This is due to the chemicals used in the manufacture of medical products for humans and animals. In addition, this sector includes manufacturing chemical-based products, such as detergents, which require much water throughout the manufacturing and distribution process.

If the chemicals used in the manufacture of any of these products end up in the central water system, they can pose a health risk to the population as they contain medical products that can have harmful long-term effects. According to Industrial Water World, a particular challenge for the pharmaceutical sector is the spread of bacteria, viruses, and other organisms that can pose a serious health risk if not disposed of properly.

Therefore, proper management of water and wastewater is crucial. This is to ensure that wastewater and the chemicals it contains are disposed of correctly and that there is an understanding of the implications of high water consumption. As industries become more aware of the consequences, action is now beginning to be taken. 

The benefits of water treatment

A properly operated and managed water treatment system can help remove chemicals and bacteria from water and allow businesses to reduce the overall amount of water used. Water is used to manufacture products, sterilize equipment and work areas, and for subsequent cleaning processes. PharmTech notes that the treatment of production wastewater, particularly inactive ingredients, is an ongoing concern. As awareness of the importance of water consumption increases, the installation of water treatment equipment for this sector is becoming more critical than ever.

The production of purified water is crucial to reduce consumption and ensure that when the water is reused, it is absolutely clean and all harmful bacteria and contaminants have been removed. If this is not the case, there is a risk of cross-contamination with other products, which is costly to rectify and damage a company’s reputation.
