Our shredders are perfectly suited for chemically aggressive material in your hospital waste, as well as other hazardous waste.
After the shredding process, the material can be optimally utilised thermally, or disposed of together with normal waste subsequent to being sterilised.
The shredding is so efficient that the granulate does not give any indications of the source material.

SHREDDING OF MEDICAL & HAZARDOUS WASTE
Medical and other hazardous waste consists of very different types of waste and requires special treatment on disposal due to the partially infectious and partially highly contaminated materials.
Depending on the waste type or classification, the hospital itself might have to specially treat the waste or store it in special plastic containers or drums on-site.
In particular in times of crisis, such as the SARS-CoV-2 or COVID-19 pandemic currently dominating our lives, larger amounts of special waste accumulate outside hospitals and doctors’ surgeries.
For example, testing lines and laboratories produce a substantial quantity of medical waste, which requires safe and above all reliable disposal.
In addition to typical hospital waste, there is also a series of other hazardous types of waste which must be efficiently and safely destroyed.
These types of waste range from workshop waste to used oil filters.
During the disposal process for hazardous waste, our shredders ensure the safe destruction of all contaminated materials.
Our four-shaft shredders have proven their worth multiple times in shredding applications for medical and hazardous waste. Our customers particularly value the high operating reliability and the low emissions, which in turn benefit the environment.
The shredded material can, thanks to subsequent sterilisation, be used either as a substitute fuel or disposed of together with normal everyday waste.
