Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between pyrolysis, ozone, and other technologies?
Autoclaving, ozone and other current methods in use today simply sterilize the waste using steam or chemicals. In addition to their inability to handle hazardous medical waste, the claim of volume reduction (not by weight) is achieved by compressing the waste into a shredded residue which still requires land filling.
The Pyromed 550 destroys the waste and is fully compliant to process all categories of medical waste including hazardous, leaving only a 7% (by weight) non-infectious char residue which can be safely landfilled.
MONARCH WASTE TECHNOLOGIES’ Innovation Facilities
Facility description and location?
Our system is closed looped and self-contained, so that zero liquids are being discharged from facility. Everything, including the wash down residuals are being recycled and destroyed in the unit. All systems are enclosed within a secured space and have receiving, storage and staging areas. The storage areas are temperature controlled and the facility is equipped with a backup generator in the event of a power failure. The staging is small and contains only the quantity of waste items that are being prepared for immediate destruction. Do to our recent EPA / DOE Pyrolysis validation, the location of our facilities are less stringent since the unit is NOT considered an Incinerator and generally can be located anywhere within a property zoned with heavy industrial use.
Is our facility permitted?
Does the PyroMedTM meet EPA and DOE standards?
Can our technology produce renewable energy?
Is there an on-site option?
Our customers shall have the option – but not the obligation – for us to develop, procure, construct, commission, own and operate a turn-key facility at a customer’s site. We will cover all of the costs associated with the on-site facility and its continued operations in exchange for a fixed price waste supply contract with a term of no less than 5 years.
