Our shredding machines are perfectly suited for the chemically aggressive material in your hospital waste. After the shredding process, the material can be optimally utilised thermally or disposed of together with municipal solid waste once it has been sterilised. The shredding is so effective that the granulate does not give any indications of the source material. Hospital waste consists of very different types of waste and requires special treatment during disposal due to the presence of infectious and highly contaminated materials. Depending on the waste type or classification, the hospital itself might need to specially treat the waste or store it in dedicated plastic containers or drums on-site.

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 refrigerated trucks and carefully disposed of to eliminate potential exposure. In many cases, the waste must be autoclaved before it is land filled. This complex process results in exceedingly high costs for the disposal and treatment of biomedical waste.
