DECHEMA & BMBF – interactive Map of Germany for disposal of expired drugs

On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and in collaboration with the DECHEMA Society for Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology COSALUX has concepted, designed and implemented an interactive map of Germany as a guide for the disposal of expired drugs.

The issue of disposal of expired drugs usually gets little attention. Thereby unknowingly old medicines are often discarded in a wrong way with a not to underestimated impacts on our environment. Complicated by the fact, that there is no uniform regulation for their disposal in Germany.

The site is a central platform that brings together important information, explanations, and an easily accessible overview of disposal options in your own district or town.

The project for the right disposal of expired drugs was presented in early February at the “RiSKWa” final conference in Berlin by Mr Kattenkamp, the Head of Unit for resources and sustainability, to approximately 500 participants and received very positive feedback.

The grand entrance followed on the Wasser Berlin International (24 to 27 March 2015) at the exhibition stand of the BMBF. At our touch terminals Visitors to the booth could use the site extensively. Besides the other touch applications Cosalux already has been implemented for the BMBF, it was one of the main attractions for visitors.
