Medical waste

Our medical waste shredders are ideally suited for the chemically aggressive materials in your hospital waste stream. After shredding, the material is ideal for thermal destruction or it can be sterilized and disposed of with your regular waste. Our machines are so efficient that the granulate does not give any indication of the source material.

Hospital waste consists of very different types of waste and requires special treatment during disposal due to the presence of infectious and highly contaminated materials. Depending on the waste type or classification, the hospital itself might need to specially treat the waste or store it in dedicated plastic containers or drums on-site.

Our 4-shaft shredders have been tested and proven multiple times for shredding medical and hazardous waste. Our customers particularly value the high operating reliability and low emissions. The shredded material can, thanks to subsequent sterilisation, be used either as a substitute fuel or disposed of together with municipal solid waste.
