Our Facility has state of heart incineration facility for biomedical waste destruction by the combustion of organic substances contained in biomedical waste materials. Solid biomedical waste (category1-Yellow bags) is treated by thermal treatment through incinerator. Incineration of category 1 waste converts the biomedical waste into ash, flue gas, and heat. The ash is mostly formed by the inorganic constituents of the waste, and may take the form of solid lumps or particulates carried by the flue gas. The flue gases are cleaned by effective scrubbing mechanism and gaseous and particulate pollutants before they are dispersed into the atmosphere.
Facility has 4.8 TPD capacity Incinerator with primary and secondary chambers. In primary chamber we are maintaining 800 deg temperatures and in secondary chamber 1050 deg temperature is maintained. Auxiliary burners are provided at primary and secondary chambers for complete destruction of hazardous waste.
Scrubbing mechanism is provided to achieve prescribed flue gas parameters as per biomedical waste rules 2016. Residence time in secondary chamber for flue gases is 2 sec. We are monitoring Dioxin and Furan once in a year. Residual ash from primary & secondary chamber and stack bottoms is disposed to secured landfill.
The facility has 300 kg/Batch autoclave facility dedicated for the purposes of disinfecting and treating bio-medical waste. Each batch of autoclave operated at Temperature 121⁰C, Pressure 15 PSI & Residence time is 45 Minutes. The autoclave operation is monitored through PLC. Following BMW categories treated by autoclaving.
Red Category :Recyclable Biomedical Wastes generated from disposable items such as tubing, bottles, intravenous tubes and sets, catheters, urine bags, syringes (without needles and fixed needle syringes) and vaccutainers with their needles cut) and gloves is Autoclaved and disinfected.
White category:Biomedical waste such (Waste sharps including Metals) as Needles, syringes with fixed needles, needles from needle tip cutter or burner, scalpels, blades, or any other contaminated sharp object that may cause puncture and cuts. This includes both used, discarded and contaminated metal sharps is autoclaved.
To validate the performance of autoclave we are doing validation test for autoclave in every quarter. We are also doing spore testing on weekly basis as per hazardous waste rules 2016. Baby boiler is also installed to provide dry steam.
The facility has 4TPD chemical disinfection facility dedicated for the purposes of disinfecting and treating bio-medical waste. A facility is provided for chemical disinfection and post disinfection waste is shredded and sold to authorized recycler.
Blue category biomedical waste is treated such as Broken or discarded and contaminated glass including medicine vials and ampoules except those contaminated with cytotoxic wastes and Metallic Body Implants.
Chemical treatment using at least 10% Sodium Hypochlorite having 30% residual chlorine for twenty minutes or any other equivalent chemical reagent that should demonstrate Log104 reduction efficiency for micro-organisms.
The facility has 3TPD shredding facility and post chemical treatment and autoclaving plastic waste is shredded into small pieces so that it cannot be used as such and sends to authorized plastic recycler for reprocessing after shredding.
