medical incineration in Cambodia

Medical waste solutions in Cambodia

Increasing demands caused by population growth

Following continual population expansion across Cambodia sustainable and reliable approaches to treating and disposing of medical waste became increasingly important. Without having a solid and reliable infrastructure in place the challenges to securely disposing of waste would only worsen, leading to illegal dumping and a genuine threat to the countries biosecurity. To prevent risks to public health it is essential that all clinical waste, sharps and anatomical waste are disposed of efficiently and in a way that will not negatively impact the environment.

Before approaching Addfield for support many of the health care facilities across Cambodia were struggling to maintain secure disposal of waste due to outdated technology or being incapable of meeting demand leading the centres becoming overwhelmed, without a suitable waste disposal system in place which lead to
increased risks of illegal dumping becoming an unavoidable option.

Quality and Reliability

The quality and reliability of machines was a key factor in the
decision process in awarding the contract to us. As our machines are constructed out of premium rugged materials they have a far greater life expectancy with a number of our existing installations still in operation after more than 20 years of usage. Our designs, quality and suitability to waste type directly supported the UN Sustainability goals for such a project.

Full training provided

To ensure that the machines will be able to deliver consistent results for the next 15-20 years, we deliver full and detailed onsite training in the service and maintenance of these machines to local operators and engineers giving them the skills to keep the
incinerator running in their optimal capacity for many years to come.

At the end of the installation open days were held to invite key members of the community to discover the benefits of the new incinerators.
