New technology for disposal of solid medical waste

The Vietnamese government has just approved of a new medical waste treatment and recycling system to reduce and dispose of toxic solid medical waste by 2025.

Accordingly, 100 per cent of toxic solid medical waste produced from medical facilities will be collected, separately identified and transported to recycling plants, and by 2015 almost 70 per cent of this will be recycled to meet international environmental standards.

By 2025 the entire 100 per cent of the waste will be recycled and appropriately disposed.

This new and latest technology will be used at the recycling plant for both flammable and inflammable waste.
