Sustainability Benefits

  • This technology disrupts the harmful common industry practice of haul & burn and also reduces the need for inceneration, thus promoting sustainable means.

USP

  • The Sterilis device combines a steam sterilizer with a grinder and allows infectious regulated medical waste (RMW) to be treated on-site and on-demand at point-of-care in about 60 minutes.
  • The system is portable and hence can be easily moved from floor to floor, and into isolation units.

How does this work?

  • Sterilis’ device uses patented steam sterilization and grinding technology to transform medical waste into a harmless confetti-like material. The steam process heats the contents of the unit to a temperature of 136 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes to sterilize the material, which is then ground down to reduce its volume.
  • As a result of grinding the waste, the device reduces the volume of waste by 80 percent, and the sterilized confetti can be thrown out in the regular trash.
  • The portal, accessible through mobile apps and laptops, manages all manifests to log data that must be reported to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and other regulatory agencies. The data can also be accessed and monitored any time since it is stored in the cloud
