Treatability and Demonstration Testing of Cement-Based Solidification/Stabilization Technology Applications for Unusable Pharmaceutical Products Technical Report

The collection, treatment, and disposal of large volumes of unusable pharmaceutical products (UPP) comprising expired drugs and medicinals, test kits, laboratory reagents, and the like typically pose substantial and difficult challenges. This is particularly the case in most developing countries where UPP generators are widely dispersed and with available or viable UPP treatment and disposal options being very limited and very costly.

This report is the result of a project commissioned to identify, evaluate, and recommend the best, most efficient, and most cost-effective system or technology for treating and disposing of these large volumes of UPP on an on-going basis.
