Currently, all biohazardous laboratory waste is autoclaved, landfilled or incinerated.
This involves huge CO2 emissions, huge water usage and is incredibly damaging to the environment. According to Health Care Without Harm, the healthcare sector contributes 4.4% of global emissions, and that footprint is forecast to triple by 2050. Something has to change.
Envetec is that change.
Our GENERATIONS technology is a game changer.
GENERATIONS is a pioneer in environmentally friendly, clean technology solution, engineered for laboratories in the life science sector. Our validated technology is installed on-site, enabling the recycling of up to 100% of plastics at source in a safe, effective and more environmentally sustainable way. GENERATIONS is non-thermal and utilizes a proprietary biodegradable chemical. The system’s unique capabilities convert biohazardous waste into a recyclable polymer flake that is entirely safe to transport for recycling.
Benefits of Our Technology
GENERATIONS safely treats biohazardous laboratory waste including plastics, glass, sharps containers, and other general laboratory consumables.
GENERATIONS consistently achieves a consistent reduction of pathogens in line with STAATT IV requirements by combining our unique shredding technology and our proprietary biodegradable disinfection solution.
The resulting end product is a mixture of non-hazardous, recyclable polymer flake, metals and glass that can be easily separated.
The process is carbon neutral and produces clean and safe recyclable polymer flake.
Envetec’s GENERATIONS technology uses significantly lower volumes of water compared to existing biohazardous waste treatment technologies.
GENERATIONS is designed to be operated at your facility, the source of the biohazardous waste - hence eliminating the public health risk of transporting untreated biohazardous waste on public roads and eliminating the GHG emissions from transportation.
The GENERATIONS technology directly supports your Scope 2 and Scope 3 initiatives on your journey to net zero.
Our GENERATIONS technology can enable laboratories to pursue a sustainable path to plastics recycling.
“Single-use plastic and disposing of biohazardous waste is one of the most intractable and environmentally damaging issues in Science today. Envetec's GENERATIONS technology is a crucial enabler to achieve circularity in lab supply chains and has been validated by a trusted third-party to drive significant carbon reductions in a crucial hotspot in the industry.”
