Treatment of medical waste



Environmental protection and treatment of waste are highly important strategical issues of today. Treatment and diposal of waste are regulated by a strict regulatory framework. In Europe the treatment of medical hazardous waste is regulated by various regulatory systems. The regulations used  in Hungary are the strictest.

Medical waste is considered to be hazardous. Besides paper, plastic, glass and textile it contains syringes and needles as well.  Careless handling of waste can cause serious accidents. This may be worse if there is a presence of organic materials. (eg. used needles, bandages)

The waste produced during nursing should be treated in a special way always. Waste should be collected in special containers. Waste should be disposed of in the hospital area or it should be transported to waste-disposal facilities meeting the relevant provisions.

Waste should be desinfected, syringes should be destroyed before it is being transported to the municipal waste containers.

 Dispomedicor Co. Ltd. has the following technological solution. Medical waste disposal in a special, safe  device designed only for this activity in a way that contaminated waste disposal is done in a grinder of high hardness ( parts of the apparatus are made of the strongest metal that can be found in the metal market, so the apparatus can be used for grinding of glasses and even surgical instruments made of stainless steel.)

Waste desintegrates into small parts and it looses its organic material content at a high temperature (138?C). Whatever kind the derivates are, this way they are totally destroyed.  And melted plastic is treated as municipal waste.
Operation of this computer controlled apparatus leads to a quick and efficient solution. At the same time it complies fully with environmental and hygiene requirements. It is efficient and energy efficient, cost effective ( no hazardous waste transport)-furthermore it is highly safe and reliable.

Waste treatment procedure can be easily monitored (each phase of the cycle is automatically registered and stored in the hard disk), so all data  referring to critical hazardous points in the treatment of medical waste can be controlled and traced back easily (eg. quantity of waste generated – destroyed hazardous waste, site of generated waste, processed material route, etc.)
