A wide variety of wastes are too hazardous to be disposed of by traditional means. Hospitals, clinics, laboratories, nursing homes, funeral homes, dental offices and veterinary clinics are just some examples of places that produce potentially dangerous bioactive waste, often referred to as biomedical waste. Proper disposal of biomedical waste is a complex process that must be carefully controlled to avoid serious public health risks. The waste must be placed in special bags, stored separately, transported in...
Safe laboratory waste destruction is an ongoing challenge. With such a wide range of pollutants and particulates it is essential laboratory incinerators reach high temperatures to ensure total destruction of hazardous waste streams.
This category includes various products and materials collected in hospitals: hazardous waste (eg catheters, disposable gloves, test tubes, disposable gowns, material for dressing, etc.). lab hazardous waste as a result of the carrying out of research activities and bacteriological diagnostics (for example: land plates, contaminated culture, etc.). cutting waste (for example: needles, syringes, scalpels, etc.). unrecognizable organs and body parts empty containers (for example: of medicines, of disinfectants, of...
Over the years, Inciner8 have been involved in the containment and control of some of the most infectious and destructive disease outbreaks of recent times. From Ebola in Liberia to SARS in South East Asia, we have been instrumental in the providing high temperature medical incinerators to safely destroy infected waste.
Hospital waste varies from site to site and the biggest challenge is to dispose of this wide range of waste streams using one solution. Incineration is still the preferred way to process Type I to Type IV waste without endangering the health of patients, staff or anyone else coming into contact with them.
Clinical waste is costing more and more to dispose of safely. Health Clinics and Health centres can now handle their own waste streams using one of our specialist medical incinerators. Destroying hazardous waste at source is by far the most effective and efficient way of handling waste that could potentially spread diseases or viruses.
In the normal course of operation, hospitals generate a variety of waste products which are not suitable for normal disposal. While some or most hospital waste may be harmless, it is difficult to distinguish such harmless waste from infectious waste. As a result, all of the waste from a hospital must be treated as if it is harmful.
