Pharmaceuticals are ideally disposed of by high temperature (i.e. above 1,200ºC) incineration. Such incineration facilities, equipped with adequate emission control, are mainly to be found in the industrialized world. Quotations for disposing of the pharmaceutical waste in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina in this way range from US$2.2/kg to US$4.1/kg. To incinerate the current stockpile of waste pharmaceuticals in Croatia would therefore cost between US$4.4 million and US$8.2 million.
