Following the deadly Ebola outbreak in
Africa, PyroPure’s Peter Selkirk explains why the UK should treat the
development of on-site medical waste disposal technology as a priority.
The UK is woefully underprepared when it
comes to hazardous waste disposal in high-risk environments and too reliant on
out-dated procedures that leave those responsible for waste collection
vulnerable and open to infection.
