Resources

Information on PSCI and resource materials on pharmaceutical supply chain sustainability.

The resources are particularly targeted at companies working in the supply chain – our suppliers – who are warmly encouraged to make free use of all the materials here.

We will continue to build this section over time. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve it please contact us.

Webinar recording: Antimicrobial Resistance

Webinar Video Link
23 Jul 2019

This webinar initially aired on 18th July 2019

In this webinar we will be looking at the impact of pharmaceutical manufacturing on antimicrobial resistance, as well as demonstrating PSCI's PEC:PNEC calculator tool.

Our speakers will be covering the issues associated with antimicrobial drugs in wastewater, targets for environmental risk assessment of antimicrobial drugs, and how to assess the risk of antimicrobial drugs in wastewater.

We are delighted to be joined by the following speakers:

  • Daniel Caldwell, Global Director, Environmental and Occupational Toxicology at Johnson & Johnson;
  • Neil Parke, Global HSE Consultant at Lilly.
  • Pharmaceuticals In The Environment
  • Anti-Microbial Resistance

Webinar Video Link
11 Jul 2018

This is recording of the PSCI sponsored webinar on how to manage APIs in manufacturing effluent (Part 4) which took place on 10th July 2018.

The webinar gave a brief refresher on Pharmaceuticals in the Environment (PiE), Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) and Predicted No-Effect Concentration (PNEC) first principles, and introduced a PSCI resource page where PNECs can be found. It also included step-by-step guidance on how to locate PNECs and use them.

This is recording of the PSCI sponsored webinar on how to manage APIs in manufacturing effluent (Part 2) which took place on 15th June 2016. The webinar provided step-by-step guidance on this ‘spotlight’ issue for our industry and covered the following topics:

  • estimating actual API losses from the manufacturing process (PEC)
  • establishing the acceptable discharge concentration (PNEC)
  • making low capital investment housekeeping steps to reduce the loss of APIs

Webinar Video Link
3 Feb 2016

This is a recording of the PSCI sponsored webinar on how to manage APIs in manufacturing effluent which took place on 27th January 2016. The webinar provided step-by-step guidance on this ‘spotlight’ issue for our industry and covered the following topics:

  • Why is managing active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) in manufacturing effluent important?
  • What is the industry doing to improve public perceptions?
  • Understanding where you stand at the moment through the maturity ladder concept.
  • Establishing and calculating API discharge concentration called the Predicted-No-Effect-Concentration (PNEC).
  • Simple steps to reducing API process losses to waste water and what to do when the PNEC is exceeded.
  • How to advance your program to the next level.
