Healthcare waste treatment technologies database

This alternatives database is a web tool, developed by the Health Care Without Harm Global, to help staff responsible for procuring healthcare waste treatment technologies to identify alternatives to incinerators.

 

Global database of safe and sustainable healthcare waste treatment technologies

To aid in the procurement of appropriate technologies, Health Care Without Harm first published a database of non-incineration healthcare waste treatment technologies in 2007. 

The 2014 version has been fully updated and provides listings of suppliers from one hundred and six countries, from Albania to Zimbabwe.  Many of the suppliers also ship globally.
