At present, medical waste is sterilised and sent to landfill. Medi Power are the owner operators of CTEC systems, who will dispose of medical waste via gasification. This will generate 350kW of electricity for Newhaven port and 2.4MW of thermal hot water for new housing and businesses nearby, with the ash being sent to aggregates.

Making the most of your medical waste

Medi Power Ltd, are operators of CTEC Energy's patented systems exclusively for the disposal of medical waste. Medi Power, as an example, has the opportunity to take medical waste produced from local hospitals around the Sussex area, and generate  electrical energy and thermal via gasification, thermal energy for local district heating networks and maintaining exhaust gas emissions within EU and local government regulations.

Medical waste – the burning issue

The healthcare sector has seen a steady increase in the volume of waste generated in recent years, largely attributed to ongoing population growth and the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. How it chooses to manage the disposal of this waste in a world that is progressively prioritising sustainable practices has garnered significant attention.

  • Incineration has long been the go-to solution for disposing of clinical waste, but its shortcomings have become increasingly apparent:

  • Release of toxic pollutants and greenhouse gases.

  • Failure to maximise on the waste energy content.

  • The need for more sustainable, environmentally friendly solutions that not only mitigate the adverse impacts of waste disposal but also harness its latent energy potential has never been more pressing.

Avoid landfill and produce power

Organisations are increasingly coming under pressure to demonstrate their environmental credentials whilst at the same time remain competitive. By implementing a Zero Waste to Landfill strategy the CTEC Energy/Medi Power system will provide a clean disposal solution to medical waste as well as generating electricity and hot water.

Over the past 3 years CTEC Energy have developed an advanced combustion methodology with industry specialists to achieve exhaust gas emission results that exceed the European and local environmental authority requirements, which has been  certified by a UKAS accredited agency.
