The pharmaceutical sector is one of the largest in the Irish economy, in terms of GDP contribution and people employed. It is also one of the sectors that interacts most with the natural environment, hence the importance of professional expert advice.

At PP Environment Consultants, we provide assistance to pharmaceutical companies in a number of areas, including sewer discharge, waste management and greenhouse gas (GHG) compliance.

In recent times, we have been particularly involved in EPA Licence Transfer and Surrender Applications for manufacturing companies as well as Industrial Emission (IE) Licence Applications and Reviews.

We also provide guidance in the areas of Environmental and Energy Management, especially where companies need assistance to achieve ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 50001:2018.

In the client’s own words

PP Environmental Consultants, working alongside the site owners, United Metals Ltd, has provided the necessary environmental expertise to allow a smooth transfer of the IE Licence from AVARA Pharmaceuticals to Eirchem Pharma Services Ltd in order to allow operations continue at the site during a phased cessation of site activities. PP Environmental Consultants then worked with Eirchem personnel during an agreed site closure process so that the site was handed over to United Metals in a Chemically Clean State. We would recommend PP Environmental Consultants to assist other EPA Licensed companies work through a site closure or licence transfer project as they are very familiar with the processes involved and know the exacting requirements of the EPA.
