In the course of normal operations, healthcare providers and pharmacies accumulate pharmaceuticals that they will not use or dispense. Those drugs are subject to regulated reverse distribution guidelines that mainly involve destruction. Most all medicinal formulations contain inactive ingredients that have no therapeutic action, however, they do produce relatively high energy as a fuel during thermal destruction.
Tablets, capsules, syrups, and injections contain dyes, alcohols, olefins, waxes, propylene, glycols, and many other compounds that are categorized as waste-derived fuel.
At TRIOXY, we are able to oxidize the pharmaceuticals with ozone, shred and blend them into liquid OXYFUEL inside a totally enclosed system that protects our workers and the environment from dangerous dust and airborne particles. This is just another way that TRIOXY makes a difference.
