Special plants for recycling of hospital waste - Waste and Recycling - Medical Waste
Forrec produces plants for treating hospital and medical waste, featuring maximum production capacity and a high level of automation. The treatment of hospital waste is governed by strict regulations, which foresee the sterilization and disposal of potentially infectious hazardous medical waste. With FORREC plants, potentially infectious and hazardous hospital waste is pre-treated by grinding and conveying through sealed stainless steel screw conveyors, followed by grinding and final refining of the sterilized product. FORREC designs and produces plants for the cold treatment of hospital waste, with a warm humid sterilization process, which is followed by dehydration of materials. This step eliminates the need for an incinerator and avoids emissions into the atmosphere, bringing a significant benefit to the environment. The output material can be used as RDF (refuse-derived fuel).
