Date: June 18, 2024

A modern society keeps an eye on the health and well-being of its constituents. Cities build hospitals, clinics, laboratories, and other medical facilities---all geared toward maintaining good health, curing diseases, creating cures, and more.

There's just one problem. Healthcare facilities produce a lot of waste. Dangerous waste! Dirty needles, discarded body fluids, biopsy samples, expired medicines---all these are highly infectious. Left unabated, they can contaminate the environment and pose a serious health risk.

You can't just put medical waste in trash bins and send them off to the landfill. Getting rid of such dangerous wastes requires the expertise of medical waste companies that are trained, skilled, and equipped to handle such waste. ACTenviro is one of these service providers. A US-based professional waste management company that provides a comprehensive plethora of waste solutions, ACTenviro ensures that medical waste is treated, processed, and disposed of properly using advanced technology and regulated methods.

Want to know how ACTenviro can streamline your waste management process while maintaining compliance and safety?

How does ACTenviro's Microwave Disinfection System Work?

ACTenviro is at the forefront of using technology that makes handling medical waste and biohazard materials safer and more efficient. One of these technologies is the Microwave Disinfection System---the first in California. The California Department of Public Health (CPDH) considers this system as an "Approved Alternate Technology" for the management of regulated medical waste. 

Similar to the operation of a microwave oven, the technology disinfects and sterilizes hazardous medical waste using microwaves. The microwaves effectively pathogens, making the waste non-infectious and safe to handle. The process is computer-controlled to ensure an efficient and superior waste processing system.

With the Microwave Disinfection System, waste volume is reduced to 80 percent, saving landfill space and reducing hauling costs.

But that's not all! After being treated by ACTenviro's Microwave Disinfection System, regulated medical waste types below can be disposed of as non-regulated solid waste in landfills.

  • Blood and blood products
  • Dialysis waste
  • Animal and human tissues, body parts, and carcasses
  • Needles, syringes, and other sharps
  • Research waste
  • Laboratory specimens
  • Surgery waste
  • Pathology and histology samples
  • Isolation waste
  • Cultures, slides, and well plates
  • Intravenous bags, blood bags, and associated tubing
  • Animal bedding
  • Packaging materials
  • Gloves and gowns associated with waste collection
  • Other hazardous medical waste

The disinfected waste is shredded so it is unrecognizable. The treated waste can also be used as fuel for waste-to-energy facilities. 

Chemotherapy waste, pharmaceuticals, and other types of medical waste cannot be treated with microwaves. In such cases, these wastes are incinerated.
