DEHP & PVC Awareness in Healthcare


Why choose B. Braun?

More than four decades ago, B.Braun recognized the environmental and patient risks posed by products containing PVC and DEHP.  Medical devices containing these chemicals pose potential health hazards to people during medical care and to the environment during waste disposal. As a result, B.Braun was the first medical device manufacturer to remove these harmful substances from many of its products, eliminating PVC and DEHP from IV solution containers and IV sets.

In the past five years, we’ve spent $500 million in developing innovative ways to offer PVC and DEHP-free product lines. Additionally, B.Braun actively supports policies calling for the industry-wide reduction of these chemicals in medical devices in an effort to raise awareness and encourage change. Today, we remain the industry leader in processes, products, and green manufacturing.
