Three mobile medical waste incinerators have begun operating in Abu Dhabi, the Abu Dhabi Waste Management Centre (Tadweer) has announced.

The incinerators are operated at Al Mafraq Hospital and the recently launched field hospitals in Abu Dhabi at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (Adnec) and the Emirates Field Hospital in Mohammed Bin Zayed City.

With capacity ranging from 150kg to 300kg per hour, the new facilities can treat medical waste at temperatures of up to 1,200 degrees Celsius, and are equipped with advanced purification systems to keep the environment clean and safe. The process ensures that all waste related to the coronavirus disease is treated with high flexibility at various treatment locations.

The facilities are fitted with a mobile platform that allows them to operate from varied locations and conditions. Furthermore, all treatment equipment has been tested according to industrial heat treatment equipment standards.

"The operation of mobile incinerators for treating medical waste is in line with Tadweer's strategic vision to provide best-in-class solutions in disposing medical waste, especially waste resulting from coronavirus treatment," said Dr Salem Al Kaabi, General Manager of Tadweer.
