Medical Waste


Medical establishments often generate at least 10 different waste streams – including “red-bag” biohazardous waste, sharps containers, blood, and bodily fluids, to name a few. Thermal combustion or incineration is the most efficient way to safely dispose of medical waste. Most of these come with highly specific regulatory requirements, with mandatory compliance documentation.  Incineration provides complete sanitation to reduce the spread of disease and cross-contamination.
