Stakeholders

Envetech 200

The Envetec 200 is a patented innovation that shreds and sanitizes laboratory hazardous medical waste, on-site, reducing it to domestic waste. The shredding process reduces the original volume of the waste by up to 90% and the neutralizing disinfectant solution converts it to safe domestic grade waste. The systems are designed and engineered to be safe, quiet, cost efficient and simple to operate.

Sustainability Benefits

  • By using a non-thermal process, Envetec 200 does not produce any emissions.
  • The resulting dry solid residue is safe to handle and since it has been converted to domestic grade waste.
  • Provides more environmentally friendly options for subsequent disposal and the high calorific value of Envetec’s residue makes it suitable for use as a waste to energy material.

USP

  • Waste is treated quickly and safely on-site, and the end product is graded as domestic waste.
  • Offers solid financial savings over the existing high-cost of off-site haulage and disposal services.

How does this work?

  • Envetec 200 system simultaneously shreds and disinfects infectious medical waste using a patented destruction and disinfection process that kills COVID-19 viruses along with bacteria, spores and other pathogens that pose a danger to human health.
  • With one instrument processing up to 600,000kgs of medical waste per year, the technology requires no heat in the process, and according to Technopath, no dangerous chemicals emanate from the system at the end of each 20-minute treatment cycle.
  • The resulting confetti-like solid residue is categorized as regular trash, safe to handle and can be used in a number of waste-to-energy and other recycling applications.
