Portable incinerators used to dispose of infectious diseases

Environmentally safe ELASTEC MediBurn to control Ebola spread

Elastec/American Marine Sales Manager, Jeremy Pretzsch has been busy fielding inquiries about MediBurn, a portable medical waste incinerator, as a weapon in the fight to help curb the spread of Ebola.

Pretzsch recently discussed the advantages of the ELASTEC MediBurn with a United Nations representative regarding the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia and Nigeria. Environmentally safe, compact, portable, and simple to use, MediBurn is a diesel-fueled incinerator for the disposal of infectious and pathological waste in remote locations.

It is a practical and affordable solution for hospitals and clinics in developing countries around the world. The ELASTEC MediBurn is even being used to destroy illicit drugs and active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) to prevent their entry into wastewater streams.

Brett Lee, divisional manager of Bulbeck EnvrioSolutions, an Elastec/American Marine dealer in Australia, has found an eager market among the widespread islands of the South Pacific as it is impractical, dangerous and expensive to transport medical waste for extended distances. There are between 20,000 and 30,000 islands in the South Pacific, often separated by hundreds or thousands of miles.
