BD Emerald syringe reduces medical waste

10 January 2012

BD has launched the BD Emerald, a syringe for general medication preparation and delivery, which also uses less material so reduces medical waste.

“BD recognises that human health and a healthy environment are inseparable,” said Roland Goette, VP / GM Western Europe, BD Medical – Medical Surgical Systems, “and we are committed to responsible environmental stewardship in our business conduct. The BD Emerald Syringe meets our highest standards for product quality while also reducing environmental impact by using less material and sustainable operations practices.”

The BD Emerald Conventional Syringe for general medication preparation and delivery is part of the BD Emerald Syringe portfolio. The syringe is manufactured using sustainable manufacturing practices, including the use of renewable electricity, at a BD facility in Spain, and uses less material in the manufacturing process. This will, in turn, help hospitals to reduce their medical waste in line with NHS carbon footprint targets.
