As with all viruses, the suggested approach to Coronavirus infected waste disposal is on-site destruction.

This eliminates any chance of contamination, and incineration is seen as one of the easiest and most efficient ways to do so.

How Did Coronavirus Start?

Exactly how Covid started is still in question and under investigation. It is believed to have originated in Wuhan, China at the end of 2019.

Many reports point to two theories, one that is originated at the Huanan Seafood Market, or the second theory that it escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Since then, the virus (which causes the disease COVID-19) has spread to almost every country, with new cases emerging every day. In the last 2 years since these first cases many other variants have become prevailent and this is expected to continue for the foreseable future.

How can Biosecurity Help Prevent Coronavirus?

As seen in recent years the spread through human contact has grown from an ‘outbreak’ to an ‘epidemic’ and then hit ‘pandemic’ proportions. In the early days of the virus, used medical equipment such as PPE, bandages, bedding and sharps were just left on the streets allowing the virus to remain in the local area and continue spreading.

Our range of medical incinerators have been designed to operate at high temperatures to ensure complete eradication of harmful bacteria and hazardous material.

Since then the world has dealt with this type of waste much more effectively but we are now creating more than ever and are again at breaking point due to the sheer volume that is being asked to be destroyed. We have been expertise within this industry for over 18 years and have built a reputation to uphold our expert knowledge.

Experienced Supplier During Viral Outbreaks

During the start of 2020 we assisted various NGO’s and governments in the international fight against COVID-19 and manufactured a record number of units to help combat a wide range of medical waste.

The World Economic Forum state: “Infectious diseases, which are among the leading causes of death worldwide, do not confine themselves to national borders. Their capacity to spread rapidly across geographies – jeopardizing social and economic security as well as challenging human health and well-being – is amplified by ever-growing globalization, increased trade and travel, the rise in urbanization, and changes in the environment, behaviour and society.
