An Alternative Approach to Regulated Medical Waste (RMW) Hauling

Presented by

Andy Marshall, CEO, Sterilis Solutions

About this talk

Throughout the medical community, there is a growing concern about the rising costs for bio-hazardous waste remediation. Organizations have begun to examine the effects on landfills, and the impacts of incineration, originating from this type of waste. Most organizations today are seeking more effective and new approaches to this critical process outside of the standard practice of removal and destruction of the bio-hazardous waste by a 3rd party vendor, but the options have been limited – until now. To combat this ever-expanding problem of RMW, Sterilis Solutions sought a solution that addressed all the impacts detailed above. The solution came in the form of their product, the Remediator. The Remediator, which is no bigger than a standard office copier, combines a steam sterilizer and grinder into a single unit. In a few simple steps, the biohazardous waste found in sharps containers and biohazard bags is reduced to what is essentially harmless confetti. It can then be entered into an advanced recycling program.
