English Abstract
This report is the english version of the two reports on the Dutch pharmaceutical industries and deals with both the sources and releases as the measures which can be taken to reduce the environmental releases. It focusses on the chlorinated and aromatic hydrocarbons in particular. For the comparison of factories with total different products and processes the emissions were related to characteristic parameters such as multi-purpose factor, throughput and number of plants. From calculations with the computer model POLCOL for a number of model plants, which reflect the present Dutch situation as good as possible, an estimation has been made of the reductions which are possible in practice. Cost levels depend on the measures taken already, e.g. biological waste water treatment. In general a combination of process-internal and additional add-on treatment seems to be more attractive.
