Microwave Disinfection System

ACTmedical’s new Microwave Disinfection System – the first of its kind in California to offer a waste-to-energy option – will enable you to “go green” by safely disposing of your medical waste in a way that is both economical and environmentally-friendly.
We are reshaping the way in which regulated medical waste is disposed of with our innovative Microwave Disinfection System, which combines proven microwave disinfection technology with precise computer controls to deliver a superior waste processing system.

At ACTmedical, we understand that between highly-variable disposal costs, ever-evolving regulatory controls and an increased focus on sustainability, today’s healthcare and life sciences providers face more waste disposal challenges than ever before. While you have many choices for the safe disposal of regulated medical waste, we at ACTmedical believe the breadth of our offerings allows us to tailor the perfect solution for you.

Once treated by our ACTmedical systems, the regulated medical waste types listed below can be disposed of as non-regulated solid waste in landfills or used as feed stock for waste-to-energy facilities, helping companies reach their sustainability goals. Processed wastes are thoroughly disinfected, rendered unrecognizable via shredding and reduced in volume by approximately 80% (saving valuable landfill space and reducing hauling requirements and costs). If you choose our waste-to-energy option, 1 ton of your treated waste can power the average American home for over 2 weeks (per U.S. Department of Energy 2014 statistics).

ACTmedical’s Microwave Disinfection System is permitted by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) as an “Approved Alternate Technology” for the management of regulated medical waste, including the following:

  • 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

ACTmedical can also provide incineration or other processing options for chemotherapy waste, pharmaceuticals and other materials where microwave disinfection is not appropriate.
