Bins for Laboratory waste

Laboratory waste

Laboratory waste is generated in laboratories. This may contain, among other waste, surplus products, contaminated reagents, impure products, samples, analysis waste, academic laboratory waste and production waste arising from medical tests, pharmaceutical tests and environmental tests etc.

What happens with Laboratory waste

Laboratory waste and mixed small hazardous waste are treated in rotating drum furnaces at temperatures of between 1,100 and 1,200 °C. Combustion gas is then treated at even higher temperatures in a post combustion chamber. The heat generated is used as a source of in-house energy or to drive an alternator which generates electricity for our own needs or to supply the electricity grid.
