Medical waste is any kind of waste that contains infectious and contaminated materials that harmful for the environment as it results in carbon dioxide and other harmful gases that are further released into the earth's atmosphere and contribute to climate change. These are generally produced at health care facilities, such as hospitals, clinics, physician's offices, dental practices, blood banks, and veterinary hospitals/clinics, as well as medical research facilities and laboratories etc. If these medical wastes are not managed and destroyed in a proper manner it can create health and environmental risks. Incinerators are the best way of disposing all kinds of waste by reducing the waste volume and ensuring destruction of potentially dangerous substances.

Medical/hospital waste is considered a biohazard due to the potential of the spread of harmful diseases. Particularly in cities, if the situation goes out of control, it could become a major incident causing environmental and health risks. This is why it is extremely important to manage medical waste and the responsibility for the same falls to the hospitals that have a set process to separate different types of waste. Separation of waste is important as different types of waste need to be treated differently. For instance, pharmaceutical waste requires higher temperatures to ensure complete destruction.
Medical waste incinerators usually operate at higher temperatures (900 to 1200°C). The most popular medical waste incineration technology is controlled air incineration. The incinerator comprises air pollution control equipment that cleans the gaseous matter before releasing them into the atmosphere.
As recommended by authorities and sometimes required by law, incinerators are the best way to dispose of medical/hospital waste. Incineration plants are designed in a way to safely dispose of the harmful materials released by hospitals, clinics, dental practices. The basic process involves adding the waste to the primary chamber. The harmful gases are then processed through the secondary chamber and are later passed through a number of pollution control equipment. The entire process ensures that no harmful gases are released into the environment.
1. Complete destruction of waste
Incineration is especially beneficial in terms of destroying medical waste. By completely destroying the waste it makes the waste management process a lot easier and effective.
2. Volume reduction at high temperatures and conversion to ash
Medical incinerators are designed safely to dispose of harmful materials at high temperatures. The process ensures no harmful gases are released into the environment.
3. Incinerators have scrubbers for cleaning the polluted gases
Medical waste incinerators have scrubbers to clean the polluted gases and other particulate matter.
4. Incinerators have filters for trapping pollutants
Incinerator plants use filters to trap pollutants, thus preventing the release of harmful compounds.
Medical waste incinerators are absolutely crucial for the safe disposal of medical/hospital waste. The dangerous nature of the products that are discharged needs to be disposed of through the process of incineration rather than resorting to harmful methods of disposal. With the advancement in medical science, various lives are treated with much more accuracy but would all be in vain if we don’t dispose of the medical waste properly. Also, the amount of medical waste is only expected to increase in the future. Moreover, it is essential to keep a check that the process of incinerating medical waste doesn’t produce harmful gases and that no by-products are released into the atmosphere.
