Medical Waste - TRU is the safest way to Treat
Hospitals, clinics, sanitary bins, and sharps bins generate millions of tones of waste each year. In previous years, this waste has been dumped in landfill, or incinerated.
The incineration of medical waste releases harmful toxic byproducts including dioxins, mercury, lead, and toxic ash that is released into the atmosphere. These pollutants threaten human health and the environment.
The dumping of medical waste without proper treatment can lead to the spread of disease, and pathogens amongst scavenger populations such as rodents. Blood borne pathogens such as Hepatitis and HIV can be spread amongst animals coming into contact with this medical waste, and in some cases reintroduced into the human population.
The safe alternative to treating medical waste is through a TRU pyrolysis plant.
The medical waste is first pellatised, and then fed into the TRU.
The outputs from this process are:
Power generation from medical waste.
