Visitors to B. Braun's booth will have access to B. Braun's Waste Weight Calculation Tool - an online program that allows hospitals to see how much environmental waste they could reduce by using B. Braun IV bags. The tool can be used to quantify how B. Braun's EXCEL(R) and PAB(R) Partial Additive Bag products can reduce plastic waste compared to either Baxter's PVC/DEHP bag (by 28%) or Hospira's PVC/DEHP bag (by 48%). Booth visitors simply input the approximate number of IV bags their facility disposes of during the course of a year.

"B. Braun has supplied providers with environmentally responsible products for more than 30 years and continues to seek new ways of incorporating 'green' practices into both our products and general business practices," said Rick Williamson, Director of Marketing for Drug Delivery for B. Braun Medical Inc. "Using our waste weight calculation tool at this year's ASHP Midyear Meeting, attendees will see how our IV bags can help them significantly reduce their facilities' carbon footprint."
