Gas chamber treatment

 
Published: Saturday 04 July 2015

The Australia-based Scholar Incineration Company, has developed a three-stage incineration process to destroy biomedical waste completely (Vatis Update. Vo15, No 11).

The first sta&e involves burning wastes by a process cailed 'excess air combustion'. The toxic gases thus produced are fed into a second chamber where temperatures exceed 1,000C. The combustion of these gases results in the removal of toxic dioxin and furan substances. In the last phase, non combustible hydrochloric and sulphuric acid gases and the ultrafine residue of the combustibles get absorbed and neutralised.
