We have commissioned an analysis to assess the environmental sustainability of two possible strategies of infectious hospital solid waste management and, consequently, to verify if our innovative solution is environmentally more sustainable than current practice.
The whole study was performed by a life cycle assessment (LCA) approach conforming to the LCA ISO standards 14040 and 14044:2006 [1,2].
The result of this report quantified a relevant environmental advantage of our technology, compared to the current strategy of hospital solid waste management.
The main strengths identified for the considered case study were:
These advantages are highlighted in the cases where the hazardous waste needs to be sent far from the waste production way for the incineration. Indeed, the environmental cost of the transport is added to the load of the treatment.
