Abstract


The technological processes specific to the phytotherapeutic industry involve the use of a large amount of organic reagents and solvents, necessary for the technology of extraction of active compounds from plants. Therefore, monitoring the production flow is imperative for the early identification of volatile organic compounds emissions, noise levels, radiation, monitoring the management of waste and packaging and the management of hazardous substances and preparations. In this context, this research addresses a particularly important topic, aiming to analyse and synthesis the technological processes speciffic to the production of homeopathic preparations, in order to identify potential sources of pollutant emissions and the presentation of the main environmental protection requirements in this industrial sector. The company SC PLANTEXTRAKT SRL, analyzed by us, has an experience of over 27 years in plant processing, with the production of phytotherapeutic preparations, gemotherapeutics and homeopathic medicines. The results obtained from our study show that production flows and quality control are GMP certified - international pharmaceutical certification for good manufacturing practice, a confirmation of compliance with all technical, material and human conditions for the production of high quality products.
