Workshop #1: Reducing Pharmaceutical Residuals in the Baltic Sea Region
Do you want to take a first step to help prevent pharmaceutical residuals in the sea and increase the export of your innovative solutions?
To kick-off the SI funded project "Closing gaps: Techniques and solutions for reducing pharmaceutical residuals in the Baltic Sea region", we welcome you to the first of three introductory workshops held in Malmö, Sweden. The other two will be organised later in the autumn 2022 and in the spring 2023.
The workshop will be centred around the existing technical challenges and gaps between countries and sectors. The goal is to embrace the common opportunities of preventing and reducing pharmaceutical residuals in the Baltic Sea.
Together, we will explore the whole chain, from production to final destination. As a participant in the workshop, you will expand your own knowledge, collaborate, share and compare techniques to prevent and reduce pharmaceutical residuals as early in the process as possible.
Do you have or know of a solution which could help? We would love to share this with our network. Reach out to Caroline Charlier (

Why is the project needed?
Pharmaceutcial residuals is a well-known problem in the Baltic Sea. This project has a unique entry point: to stop the residuals as early in the process as possible. In everything from the production of pharmaceuticals and the handling of used drugs, to management systems at hospitals, city waste treatments, hospital cleaning and so on.
