Farma: LCA van PVC- en aluminiumblister voor tabletten

30 augustus 2016

Researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology Ropar compared the environmental impacts of two different types of packaging of tablets: PVC blister and aluminium blister packaging. Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) methodology was used for this comparison. They found that the environmental performance of PVC blister packaging was better than that of aluminium blister packaging as the PVC blister packaging performed better in 9 out of 11 impact categories. The aluminium foil manufacturing stage is the least environment friendly step. Water is found to be the major material resource consumed during the life cycle of both systems. An article about the research is published in Perspectives in Science.
