In recent years, with the construction of civilized cities across the
country, the sanitation environment of public toilets has also been improved.
However, pharmaceutical companies that extract urine from public toilets and
produce urokinase injections for cerebral thrombosis are facing a shortage of
raw materials. In foreign countries, the domestic production of urokinase
injection has shrunk, seriously affecting the rescue and treatment of patients
with cerebral thrombosis.
From a bubble of "urine" to a medicine for treating blood clots, urokinase
has mainly gone through the following steps:
Urine collection in public toilets in schools→processing of crude
urokinase→recycling supplier of crude urokinase→finishing of crude urokinase
(pharmaceutical factory)→pharmaceutical sellers→hospitals and pharmacies
The above-mentioned links of urine collection and crude product processing
are often together. As long as the urine is settled, then purchase processing
equipment and receive relevant technical training, the crude urokinase can be
processed. If it is sold directly to pharmaceutical factories, there may be a
phenomenon that the accumulation cannot be sold for a long time and the capital
turnover cannot be opened. Therefore, the vast majority of crude products will
choose to sell to large crude product processing companies in the industry after
processing, and let them recycle.
Affected by the market environment at home and abroad, the price of crude
urokinase is also rising year by year, especially during the epidemic, school
holidays, crowd isolation, and urine collection are even more difficult. A few
years ago, the profit of a meal of urine was about 2,000 yuan, but since last
year, the profit of extracting urokinase from a meal of urine has reached more
than 2,000 yuan! Now a school with 2,000 students can make hundreds of thousands
of profits a year!
Coupled with the current situation of national water shortage, all
provinces have introduced relevant water-saving policies to encourage
enterprises to build water-saving projects. Urine from public toilets needs to
waste a lot of water resources. If the urine in public toilets is made into a
hidden transformation and collected, on the one hand, it can save a lot of water
resources. Industry economic development.
