Environmental: Sanitec systems are recognized worldwide for their environmental compatibility. Because waste is processed at relatively low (203-212A^°F) temperatures, Sanitec does not create the volatile organic compound or substance emissions commonly associated with other treatment methods (e.g. incineration, autoclaving). There are no chemicals used in any part of the process, and there are no liquid discharges of any kind. Sanitec users have been awarded a number of organizational and governmental awards, including two Governor?s Awards in Arizona and Illinois, for their commitment to a clean environment displayed by utilizing microwave disinfection technology. Operational: Sanitec?s completely automated lift/load and material handling capabilities, process and engineering controls virtually eliminate occupational exposures such as spill, lifting, and needlestick injuries associated with medical waste handling. Waste can be collected and stored at the point of generation, transported, and treated using a one-container system. No special (e.g. autoclavable) bags or boxes are required. All treatment functions are microprocessor controlled and digitally recorded. Noise and odor are minimized through engineering control features built into the system. Sanitec units have demonstrated an outstanding record for reliability and serviceability, with availability rates of up to 97%.
