Tech pioneers for sustainable Healthcare

We discover. We dare. We care.

The statistics are staggering. The global health care industry is responsible for two gigatons of carbon dioxide each year, representing 4.4% of worldwide net emissions – the equivalent of 514 coal-fired power plants.
This is for a significant part caused by the use of petrochemical based resources in medical equipment. Euronitrile accelerates the design, development and use of bio-materials in healthcare applications

The hidden harm of medical plastic waste and pollution


Hospitals generate over 29 pounds of waste per bed per day. A waste plan is critical for any sustainability programming.


The global healthcare industry produces for more than 5 million tons of (mainly single-use plastic) waste each year.

Waste & Management

Every hospital is challenged by the complexity of healthcare waste and limited recycling and management options. Just recycling isn’t enough.

Euronitrile is leading the way helping healthcare institutions toward decarbonization and waste reduction goals. Together with these hospitals and health systems Euronitrile designs biobased solutions and implementing a set of actions to reduce the healthcare climate footprint. 

Supported by the European Union, Kansen voor West, Euronitrile is able to develop and demonstate our solution in leading Dutch hospitals on our way to market introduction.
