About us

Sterling Environmental Solutions is part of a network of global facilities belonging to Sterling Pharma Solutions, a pharmaceutical contract development and manufacturing organisation.

For more than 30 years, our waste treatment facility has been located alongside Sterling’s Cramlington, UK based pharmaceutical manufacturing amenities, operating as an integrated part of the site’s pharmaceutical production processes. This allows the treatment of the organisation’s own process wastewaters, in addition to the commercial disposal and recovery of waste from other businesses.


Our expert waste treatment team

Our team has more than 30 years’ experience treating hazardous or non-hazardous aqueous and solvent waste. Our on-site waste analysis laboratory is staffed by highly skilled analysts, with access to global resources and knowledge as part of Sterling Pharma Solutions’ network.


Sterling culture and values

As part of Sterling Pharma Solutions, we share its values and culture, and we are committed to doing the right thing for our customers and the planet.

We have invested into facilities that not only treat our own manufacturing waste responsibly, but that of other businesses, supporting their sustainability efforts also.

At our Cramlington, UK site, we are committed to reducing our energy related emissions by 50% by 2025, with an ultimate goal to become carbon neutral. As part of this, Sterling announced its £8 million investment into an anaerobic plant to support its sustainability goals. Read more here.
