Due to the combination of world population growth that considerably increases infection risks at all levels, the World Health Organization has defined this kind of waste must be isolated and destroyed or neutralized.
Bandages, syringes, probes, containers for used sharp and cutting instruments are excluded from the domestic waste cycle and only reintegrated if appropriate after processing.
In all locations where MIW are generated, such as hospitals, clinics, laboratories, blood transfusion centres or outside care facilities (home care or other hospitalization structures), a specific solution must be installed. Generally speaking, it has become either waste removal for incineration or on-site processing.
STERIGERMS addresses on-site processing of MIW and stands as on ongoing reference on the world market for on-site treatment of MIW .
