Abstract: Each year the pharmaceutical industry uses a substantial amount of complex and heavy packaging materials to maintain an adequate temperature for the safe distribution of temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products. A complete analysis of the current distribution system in relation to the packing materials, packaging and shipping cost, and the environmental impact of the insulation materials was conducted to determine were opportunities exist for reducing the environmental impact of the packaging system by utilizing unconventional materials as thermal insulation. The common insulation packages used in the pharmaceutical industry were tested along side the proposed innovative insulation materials.
