Medical Waste Incinerators Market - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018-2026


It is reported that approximately 25% of the medical waste is deemed hazardous and pose several environmental and health risks. Incineration is the most viable method for disposal of such waste by offering complete destruction and neutralization of waste items. Incineration implies high-temperature process allowing combustion of waste materials in controlled conditions, converting into inert materials and gases. Incinerators are oil-fired, electrically powered or hybrid; and are used in hospitals in following forms: multiple hearth, rotary kiln and controlled air with primary and secondary chambers ensuring complete combustion.  

Medical waste eligible for incineration includes waste generated in hospitals, clinical research laboratories, and medical laboratories. Stringent environment and safety guidelines for processing and handling of waste have been established worldwide. Pharmaceutical manufacturers and healthcare facilities are the largest producers of medical discards. Evolution of healthcare infrastructure in developed parts of the world has ensured establishment and compliance of medical waste management policies in these regions. Need for compliance with such rules has urged healthcare facilities to opt for outsourcing of incineration and other waste management processes on a contractual basis.

Waste feed in controlled air incinerators usually ranges from small to high loads, with manual or automatic process for ash removal. Additionally, excess air incinerators are small units with multiple chambers or batch incinerators. These units can be operated continuously and can burn any type of medical waste. Rotary kiln type incinerators have a primary chamber in which the waste is first heater and volatilized. Such waste is transferred to the secondary chamber for combustion.
