A new, low-volume biowaste-treatment system

By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey |

The MicroEDS BioWaste Treatment System (photo) was recently introduced for biologically hazardous waste decontamination, typically required in the biopharmaceutical sector, laboratories and research institutes. The low-volume system is certified to ASME and ISO/EN standards for treating BSL 1, 2 and 3 waste using a batch process. MicroEDS includes a number of major technical advances, including thermal energy regeneration, low energy usage, 100% positive release for treated waste and electronic-records generation. The MicroEDS has been developed to fit into new lines or to be retrofitted into existing facilities. The system is designed to operate at a thermal treatment parameter of 121°C for 15 min, as well as variable temperature, time and F0 lethality settings, for specific requirements. With capacities varied to suit a wide range of waste volume from 150 to 500 L/d, the MicroEDS is supplied with controls and interlocking functionality to ensure containment is constantly maintained and there is always a positive release prior to discharge of treated waste. — Suncombe Ltd., Enfield, Middlesex, U.K.
