Environment - Medical Waste Management

Experts consider incineration to be more acceptable as compared to other waste treatment and disposal options available in most under serviced areas. Incineration is definitely the most suitable solution in eliminating organic waste like hospital waste, pharmaceutical waste, oily waste, animal waste, all kinds of industrial hazardous waste including pesticides. Incinerators can also become clean and energy recycling technology, but must be used within a safe waste management programme that provides the necessary resources and maintenance support while minimising exposure risk to surrounding communities.

An incineration facility is proposed for the destruction of medical waste generated by hospitals, healthcare practitioners, pharmaceutical sector, clinics, laboratories, and other sectors. The medical waste will generally comprise of the following;

  • General medical waste comprising of paper, plastic, office waste, sanitary, baby and adult diapers.
  • Infectious medical waste comprising of soaked bandages, blood, cotton wools, swabs, gauzes, sharps, syringes and needles.
  • Pathological / Anatomical waste comprising of tissues, organs, body parts and body fluids.
  • Pharmaceutical waste comprising of expired, unused, and contaminated pharmaceutical products.
  • Chemical solvents and by-products manufacturing plants.
  • Counterfeit, illegal, and confiscated goods by Police Service and Customs and Excise

The service of collecting medical waste is inadequate or even absent in some instances. The scattering of baby diapers in the street corners is an unsightly scene. The aim of providing an incineration service is to support efforts towards proper waste management techniques a

Medical waste treatment by incineration

Our proposed incineration plants are on the basis of our length experiences and inovation in incinerator for the design, manufacture and operation of incinerators and associated equipment. The equipment proposed are complied with internationally accepted standards, for emissions to air, water and soil and meet the requirements for safe disposal of solid residues.

The overall installation consists of equipment with sufficient capacity to be capable of dealing with the total waste arisings within the normal working day and completely combustion and entirely automatic operation with remote contol by comuterized PLC control system.

Small capacity of medical waste incinerators (up to 1 ton/day)

Medium capacity of medical waste incinerators (up to 24 tons/day)

Large capacity of medical waste incinerators (more than 24 tons/day)
