With the covid-19 pandemic around the world, Boyue called for greater attention to be paid to the disposal of biohazard waste. Of course, attention should also be paid to the selection of the container of medical devices. Because the company is a professional engaged in R&D, production and sales of medical sharp containers, needle cabinets, surgical instruments, respiratory training equipment of the science and technology environmental protection enterprises. So using our expertise, today we’re sharing with you the importance of properly handling biohazard waste.
First of all, we need to know that biomedical waste is a perishable and potentially contagious hazardous garbage or biochemical waste, which also includes some related garbage, such as outer packaging, unused bandages, infusion bags and the like. To a lesser extent, discarded sharp waste, such as needles, is treated as medical waste when left untreated, contaminated or not. Because not handling this kind of medical waste well is very likely to bring harm to human society and even the entire ecosystem, it is necessary to pay attention to its treatment. In the United States, medical institutions are currently managed and disposed of with reference to the requirements of the Medical Waste Tracking Act (MWTA) passed by Congress in 1989. Medical waste is the most dangerous type of hazardous waste, with strong contagiousness, biological virus and corrosiveness, and its harmfulness has attracted great attention from all countries in the world.

Up to now, the country has vigorously developed the corresponding treatment and disposal technology, and the widely used method is a relatively mature treatment technology: chemical disinfection and crushing, autoclaving, gas sterilization, incineration, high temperature inactivation, radiation treatment, microwave disinfection, sewer disposal, landfill, etc., these methods can basically ensure that the BHW ingredients from medical institutions are effectively disinfected and sterilized, etc., and they are safely and properly disposed of.
Among them, the incineration method for hazardous waste treatment is currently the most widely used and mature heat treatment technology. The incineration method will oxidize and burn hazardous waste in the incinerator, and the acid gas emitted by the incineration of medical waste includes HCl, SO2, NOx, etc.
In the process of processing, there are also some medical devices that need to be professionally packed in boxes, which depends on Boyue, the quality of the boxes they manufacture exceeds the minimum level stipulated by the state, and Boyue’s factory has three automatic production lines.
