‘The medical waste were formerly subjected to chemical treatment only. However, it is a wrong solution. Today, the law requires not only to neutralize, but also to destruct such type of waste. Our equipment is capable of coping with this problem. We conduct waste incineration at the temperature of 950 degrees by using proper equipment. The output product is non-hazardous ash, which is ultimately disposed at the landfill’, Ekaterina Mertekhina, the Centre’s expert, said to the Deputy Minister of Construction.
Whereas Andrei Chibis noted, that there was a lack of such centers in Russia and that Tambov’s attempt was worth to be respected.
