EH&S

Environmental Care

As a responsible corporate citizen, Bharat Biotech takes a comprehensive approach to environmental sustainability. We limit our use of chemicals to as little as is required. Our manufacturing units use microbial cultures like recombinant yeast and E.coli. Apart from microbes, we also use as raw material chemicals like sucrose, peptone, Tris Buffer, EDTA and sodium chloride along with purified water.


At each stage of manufacturing, we aim to use natural resources efficiently to minimise the impact to environment from our activities. More importantly, we treat chemicals at our advanced in-house wastewater treatment plant (120 KLD capacity) before releasing them safely. Our pre-treatment (sterilization) and HEPA filters prevent any accidental release of genetically modified organisms.


Solid waste is segregated as per CPCB norms and sent to Pollution Control Board (PCB) authorized organizations such as the Hyderabad Waste Management for treatment and disposal. Our team actively monitors air and water pollution with the help of PCB authorized laboratories. We are conservative in our use of energy and use renewable sources wherever possible.
