Welcome to MedRecycler
MedRecycler is a leading-edge medical waste facility that serves the needs of the medical community.
The Medical Waste to Energy opportunity is the Company’s first response in targeting a global medical waste market place that is expected to reach $33.4 billion by 2025.
MedRecycler’s goal is to target and build out multiple strategic Waste to Energy opportunities in North America in support of its high efficiency pyrolysis technologies.
Trace Chemo Waste
Trace Chemo waste are vials that have less than 3% of the original volume. This waste is segregated from the “Red Bag” waste into Yellow Chemo Containers.
Healthcare providers may find themselves faced with a recurring dilemma: a growing supply of pharmaceutical waste without a clear, safe means of disposal.
Pyrolysis is Superior to Incineration
PYROLYSIS by contrast is a thermochemical treatment, which can be applied to any organic (carbon-based) product. It can be done on pure products as well as mixtures. In this treatment, material is exposed to high temperature, and in the absence of oxygen goes through chemical and physical separation into different molecules. The decomposition takes place thanks to the limited thermal stability of chemical bonds of materials, which allows them to be disintegrated by using the heat.
According to the U.S. EPA, for every ton of municipal solid waste processed at Energy-from-Waste facilities, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced by approximately one ton. This is due to the avoidance of methane from landfills, the offset of greenhouse gases from fossil fuel electrical production and the recovery of metals for recycling.
INCINERATION requires high-temperature burners that use the heat generated from the fire to run a boiler and steam turbine in order to produce electricity. During combustion, complex chemical reactions take place that bind oxygen to molecules and form pollutants, such as nitrous oxides and dioxins. These pollutants pass through the smokestack unless exhaust scrubbers are put in place to clean the gases.
