Medical waste is generated at healthcare facilities, such as hospitals, physicians’ offices, dental practices, blood banks, and veterinary clinics, as well as medical research facilities and laboratories. Medical waste generally refers to all solid wastes produced at a healthcare facility, whereas regulated medical wastes includes materials that require special management. Regulated medical waste is healthcare waste that may be contaminated by blood, body fluids, or other potentially infectious materials. Medical waste is frequently referred to as biohazardous waste, biomedical waste, clinical waste, other potentially infectious material (OPIM), potentially infectious medical waste (PIMW), or through its United Nations classification number, UN 3291.

Medical Waste Disposal Technology

We are proud to use Steam Sterilization and Maceration (SSM) technology as the basis of our unique biohazardous waste processing system. This system is designed for safe, efficient and cost-effective processing of:

  • Biological agents and infectious materials
  • Needles, syringes and disposable surgical instruments
  • Contaminated plastics
  • Sharps containers/needle boxes
  • Confidential media and proprietary materials
  • Blood products and body fluids
  • Pathogens: bacterial, viral, fungi or proteinaceous infectious agents
  • Contaminated animal carcasses (less than 40 pounds) and animal bedding
  • Some pharmaceuticals

The benefits of SSM processed waste?  It is sterilized, safe and no longer recognizable as medical waste. Therefore, it can be recycled or disposed of as ordinary municipal trash. Unlike medical waste incinerators and autoclaves, SSM processing is free of unpleasant odors and does not release any negative air emissions. It is more environmentally friendly and less costly than any other on-site medical waste management alternative.

How It Works

Within 30 minutes, they system softens the waste while the particles are simultaneously surrounded by superheated water and steam until sterilization is achieved. Most bio-hazardous waste processors only disinfect waste; We guarantee sterilization with our process.
