Incinerating hospital waste in the ENVIKRAFT A/S specially designed incinerator system, guarantees completely sterile ash without any trace of infection.
When handling larger amounts of X-ray waste, it is required to incinerate the X-ray waste under specific process and design conditions - a field where ENVIKRAFT A/S have extensive specialised know-how (see also LLRW).
The ash will contain less than 3% unburned matter ensuring completely safe deposit.
As the incinerator process is continuously monitored and controlled, the release from the stack is in full compliance with the European Directive on Waste Incineration or any other equally strict regulation.
