The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most important branches of industry in terms of the healthcare sector.
It is responsible for the production of active ingredients and intermediates for the synthesis of active ingredients using a large number of manufacturing processes. These are used, among other things, for the manufacture of finished medicinal products, blood preparations, sera, vaccines, in-vivo diagnostics, allergen preparations and medicinal products for advanced therapies (e.g. gene therapeutics, somatic cell therapeutics, biotechnologically processed tissue products).
In addition to the resulting production waste water, cooling water or rainwater from roofs, roads, production areas, transshipment points or tank farms play an important role.
