Drug recovery

A shortage of life-saving drugs, mostly oncology, is a known issue around the world for more than decay. Studies show that 70-90% of the drugs we take, leave our bodies reaching wastewater and flushed to municipal treatment plants. Many of those pharmaceuticals and prescription drugs residues, affecting plant, animal, and human health when they re-enter the water cycle and require high-cost removal processes. By applying the drug recovery process directly from patients' excretion or the hospital wastewater, it is possible to improve wastewater quality, reduce the treatment costs and produce a valuable high purity active pharmaceutical ingredient, which will be available for pharma industry or research institutes.
