What is Clinical Waste?

Clinical waste is waste produced from healthcare and similar activities that may pose a risk of infection to anyone coming into contact with it. Clinical waste also refers to any other waste arising from medical, nursing, dental, veterinary, pharmaceutical or similar practice. Producers of such waste are required by law to dispose of their waste in a responsible manner.

Clinical Waste Specification

Clinical waste includes waste that consists wholly or partly of human or animal tissue, blood or other body fluids, excretions, drugs or other pharmaceutical products, swabs or dressings, syringes, needles or other sharp instruments.

What is its use?

Clinical waste is destroyed with high temperature incineration, employing very high temperatures to combust the waste. This process ensures a high level of safety, turning the dangerous and infectious clinical waste into nothing but gas, ash and heat.
