Laboratory fluid waste may contain biological fluids, used reagents, solvents, heavy metal traces and insoluble chemicals. These persistent organic compounds have to be treated with a waste management system before being discharged into the sewer to avoid potential toxic effects for the environment and living organisms.The innovative customized plants are designed for the treatment of biomedical laboratory liquid waste, in order to remove biological hazards and reduce over 90% of organic and inorganic pollutants from laboratory fluid waste. The process is carried out by eliminating all the microorganisms from the liquids, thus reducing the chemical pollutants' concentration. The system is highly effective in accordance to STAATT Level IV of microbial inactivation. The final result is compliant with the limit values for the discharge into the sewage network. The plant is ideally suited for the needs of large centralized laboratories and external treatment plants. It employs a batch treatment process, whereby a volume of laboratory liquid waste is gathered and treated before it is discharged. The tailor made layout depends on both volume and characteristics of the fluid waste. It uses Advanced Oxidation Process (AOP), the so called Fenton process, which involves the generation of hydroxyl radicals, very powerful non-toxic oxidants that react rapidly with most organic compounds. After fluid neutralization, the solid particles precipitate and are separated from the liquid by an innovative mechanical filter. The plant is fully automated and equipped with industry 4.0 instruments. The on-board programmable logic controller (PLC) can be connected to an internet cloud service through a GSM router to carry out remote control of functions from a PC and monitor cycle statistics.
