The Deterra Drug Deactivation System Features and Benefits

FeatureBenefit
Powered by MAT12®Protected by eight US and 13 international patents, there is no other company that can offer this proprietary technology.
Environmentally Sound PackagingThe Deterra® Drug Deactivation Pouch is made from environmentally sound materials. The pouch material contains organic additives that are consumed by microbes found in landfills, resulting in degradation of the plastic pouch. The end result is the release of water and carbon dioxide, with little organic biomass left behind.
Easy to UseThe simple three-step process is easy and encourages utilization and proper deactivation of drugs.
Supported by ScienceDeterra was developed through a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) contract with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (a division of the National Institute of Health).
Wide-range of CapacityDeterra is available in multiple sizes and recommended capacity is listed on each pouch or container.
Lessening environmental impact of drugsThe Deterra pouch is made from environmentally sound materials. This allows for the degradation of the plastic pouch and zipper through the use of organic additives that are consumed by microbes found in landfills. The result is the release of water and carbon dioxide, with little organic biomass left behind. This greatly reduces the amount of material left in landfills.

Additionally, Verde® has demonstrated that drugs will be retained within the activated carbon used in Deterra even when exposed to acidic solutions that may be found in a landfill setting.
Cost EffectiveLow cost way of getting rid of unused and unwanted pills, liquids and patches at-home and in clinical and public settings.
