Traditional solutions (incineration and burial at landfills) are highly polluting and dangerous.
Modern Incineration is expensive, requiring transportation that is hazardous to the population and to the environment.
Quality and safety practices prescribe treating hazardous waste ON-SPOT & ON-SITE.
Hygimed is the best ON-SITE waste treatment solution:
1. The shredding process reduces 100% waste volume to 20% unrecognizable waste
2. A green chemical formula converts biomedical waste into ordinary sanitary waste
3. Hygimed is a simple to operate, safe & efficient, disinfecting shredder
4. Hygimed is a green solution with the smallest footprint available on the market
5. Hygimed offers small operation space simple infrastructure requirements, & clean site at hospital premises
6. Hygimed requires low initial investment and low operational cost
7. Hygimed offers dramatically reduced hospital treatment expenses
Hygimed is an innovative process approach for shredding and simultaneous chemical disinfection of biomedical waste.
Hygimed was especially designed for hospitals, thus it is efficient, safe, and very simple to use, while being relatively small to precisely fit hospital space and treatment cost considerations
Hygimed treats all types of hazardous waste, except cytotoxic materials, including: sharp objects, red bags, surgical waste, whole blood & plasma, lab ware, suction canisters, gloves, bandages, scalpels, dialyzers, tissues and pathogens, trace chemo etc.
The Hygimed process output is a sanitary, shredded waste that may be removed with ordinary hospital trash, thus eliminating special, expensive transportation to a remote treatment center. The return on investment (ROI) of this technology may well be less than 1 year.
· Treating hazardous waste in remote treatment centers involves storing it untreated at hospital sites. The length of storage depends on the agreement with the contractor regarding evacuation frequency. Storing untreated waste at hospitals is risky to the staff, malodorous, and attracts rodents and insects.
· Transporting hazardous waste to remote treatment facilities can mean passing through population centers. A vehicle does not provide complete protection and accidents can happen.
There are many variables involved in the pricing of medical waste disposal. Cost depends on the location of treatment facilities, the volume of the waste, the frequency of the evacuations and of transport regulations that can vary from place to place.
Treating waste with Hygimed on-site reduces:
1. The risk of intermediate storage to hospital staff
2. The risk to communities from transporting hazardous waste on the roads
3. The need for special high-volume, expensive transportation
