API (steroid) removal


  • Steroid removal
  • 2 technologies combined

Our client produces a medicine against prostate cancer. The process generates wash and cleaning streams that contain the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API), in this case, the steroids. Obviously, this component needs to be removed before discharge to further water treatment.

Inopsys developed an on-site alternative for the treatment of this wash and cleaning stream, for avoiding transport and incineration. This installation is mobile and will be used by various customers. It is a combination of two different technologies. Thanks to this concept, a considerable number of unnecessary pollutions are again avoided, the treatment costs are reduced, and the initial production can be carried out more sustainably.
