Newster’s Frictional Heat Treatment enables hospitals to process hazardous solid waste on-site in a sustainable and cost-effective way.
The Newster infectious solid waste sterilization cycle is based upon a mechanical breakdown (impact and friction) of the waste inside a closed vessel in slightly negative pressure.
The waste is heated up to 149±1 °C to achieve a microbial inactivation of 6log10 reduction of G. Stearothermophilus spores (STAATT Level IV ).
The treated residue is sterile, dry, odorless, unrecognizable, with a weight loss of 20% and a volume loss of 70%
Cost reduction is achieved through:
• No special disposal needed
• Transport and storage cost reduction
• Opportunity to launch energy recovery projects by using sterilized residue as refuse-derived fuel (RDF)
• Newster sterilizers for hospital solid waste can be equipped with remote monitoring and self-diagnosis functions. Via Insight Webapp the systems can be connected and guarantee a better traceability of HCW stream.
• Since 2020 and the outbreak of the COVID/19 global epidemic we have seen a steady rise in the use of PPEs for hospital staff, patients and local populations. The enormous amounts of medical waste have flooded treatment facilities stressing capacity limits
• By adopting Newster FHT The entire process takes place on-site under the control of a person that is specifically trained to do so and guarantees the maximum efficiency and safety for the hospital and the community that surrounds it.
• In order to block the spread of contamination through hazardous/contaminated waste that is not properly handled from cradle to grave we, at Newster, have given great thought to what we could do to give assistance beside our traditional on/site eco/sustainable systems present in over 45 countries with more than 580 installations.
