Polymer bottle packaging

Our Polymer bottle packaging, used for certain contrast media products, is 100% recyclable. A life-cycle analysis showed that our polypropylene bottles, compared to glass, have a 59% lower environmental impact, and require 45% less cumulative energy. Our Polymer bottle packaging also requires less secondary packaging, helping to reduce carbon footprint.3

Protecting and optimizing iodine

We have been recycling iodine-based contrast media for healthcare facilities since 2006. Initially launched in Norway, we now offer this recycling program in 11 European countries and, in 2021, expanded it into Canada and the United States.4
