GLRPPR Sector Resource: Indian Drug Manufacturers Must Clean Up Their Act

Title:
Indian Drug Manufacturers Must Clean Up Their Act

Abstract:
New research has branded pharmaceutical manufacturers in India as being responsible for the release of substantial and worrying amounts of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) into the environment. In this article, Kirsty Barnes describes a study conducted by a team of Swedish researchers that revealed pharmaceutical manufacturers in India were responsible for the release of active ingredients into wastewater, and that the wastewater treatment plant serving those manufacturers subsequently discharged highly drug-contaminated water into local waterways.
