ECODAS | AREA OF ACTIVITIES : Infectious waste treatment

AREA OF ACTIVITIES

INFECTIOUS AND MEDICAL WASTE TREATMENT

Problem Definition

The biomedical waste is defined as waste generated from the health care activities such as treatment, diagnostics, monitoring, preventive, healing or soothing control in both human and veterinary medicine.  The overall infectious material can consist of:

  • • Infectious medical waste (any contaminated waste that can cause harm to human, animal health, or to the environment) is composed of paper, plastic, glass, metal, or fabrics
  • • Pathological waste (waste derived from any tissue from animal carcasses or non-recognizable human specimens)
  • • Infected sharp waste (syringes, needles, scalpels, and blades)
  • • Infectious liquid waste (blood, pleural fluid, peritoneum, pericardium, amniotic, synovial...)
  • • Laboratory waste (culture media, sampling...)
  • • Pharmaceutical waste such as expired vaccines and non-conforming lots that are intended for destruction

The biomedical waste must be treated onsite at the point of generation by an explicit and certified system or shipped offsite to a permitted treatment facility.

Solution:

ECODAS offers a compliant and approved solution tailored to each scenario!


 

TREATMENT OF LIQUID AND INFECTIOUS EFFLUENTS

Problem Definition

Liquid discharged from hospitals are generally loaded with pathogens.

Solution

The ECODAS SYSTEM especially designed for the treatment of "liquid effluent" allows sterilization of effluents before discharging to the sewer.


 

ANIMAL WASTE TREATMENT

Problem Definition

Regulation CE, No 1774/2002 classifies animal by-products into three categories based on their potential risk to human health, animal health, and the environment then defines how each category must or may be eliminated.

Materials of Category 1:

These are materials that pose a significant risk to the public health (risk of TSE, MRS, and banned substance...).   Such materials must be identified, collected, and transported without delay to be destroyed by incineration or landfilled after processing and marking.

Materials of Category 2

These are materials comprising mainly animal by-products with a smaller risk to the public health.  Such products are disposed of through incineration or burial after processing, they can also be treated by shredding and steam sterilization in order to be recycled and ready for certain applications other than animal feed (replacement of fuel oil into biomass, organic fertilizers, composting or methanization).

Materials of Category 3:

These are materials which do not exhibit health risk and include parts of slaughtered animals suitable for human consumption and former foodstuffs of animal origin, but are not intended for the latter for commercial reasons.  Only materials of Category 3 can be used in animal feed after applying appropriate treatment in licensed processing facilities.

Solution :

The treatment and processing of these materials by the ECODAS system allow their recycle as biomass, organic fertilizers, enriching agents, compost, or substance for the production of biogas by The biomedical waste must be treated onsite at the point of generation by an explicit and certified system or shipped offsite to a permitted treatment facility.
ECODAS offers a compliant and approved solution tailored to each scenario!


 

TREATMENT OF PORT AND AIRPORT WASTE

Problem Definition

Ports and airports bring together many businesses including catering companies (production of meal trays) and other hospitality segments. Their food and putrescible waste must be treated to prevent any spreads epidemics or outbreaks like the bird flu, H5N1, SARS, Ebola...

Solution

ECODAS The system is well suited to effectively process and treat these types of materials as well as infectious waste


 

DESTRUCTION OF CONFIDENTIAL DOCUMENTS AND SUPPORTS

Problem Definition

Ensure the confidentiality of information and carry out the destruction of:

  • Medical records
  • Archives
  • Patient documents
  • Hard drives, floppy disks
  • Video or audio Tapes, magnetic tapes
  • CD, DVD, USB sticks

Solution

The ECODAS system allows physical destruction -- onsite -- of these materials and therefore, eliminates any possible leak or liability risks during their transport to an offsite destruction facility.
