Inciner8 Incinerators and incineration

Hospital waste varies from site to site and the biggest challenge is to dispose of this wide range of waste streams using one solution.

Incineration is still the preferred way to process Type I to Type IV waste without endangering the health of patients, staff or anyone coming into contact with them.

Where are our incinerators are being used?

Our incinerators are used in every corner of the globe by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and the United Nations (UN) as well as being supplied to many leading charities and aid agencies to help protect the health of vulnerable communities.

You will see our range of medical incinerators located in the hospitals and health clinics across every continent. Most recently, including 26 medical incinerators to the Eygyptian Army for use in military hospitals through Egypt.

“We are using a range of different incinerators from Inciner8 for the hospitals we operate in the region. Some of these are 100+ bed facilities while other are drop-in centres with relatively small volumes of waste”.

We recently supplier 20+ medical units to “Pacific Hazardous Waste Management” programme, PacWaste, as part of a €7.85M project across the South Pacific region.
