Re: Incineration of UDDT waste at healthcare facilities - request for feedback

This marks a step forward for UDDT applications. Certainly a good application for onsite disposal. As a manufacturer of UDDT's in Australia for Industry and individual uses, the disposal question is often raised and as yet no method that satisfies all situations has emerged. Incineration ( without effluent or reduced effluent) was raised with me some years ago when a user reported pathogen free results from micro waving the solids for short exposures . I would be interested in any views on this especially if there is some documentation of methods etc.

Re: Incineration of UDDT waste at healthcare facilities - request for feedback

Sludge Incinerators typically operate at temperatures above 900C and are co-fired with fossil fuels.  Human feces can be treated between 300C and 600C and has enough energy to dry and treat itself. UDDT waste often contains paper, sanitary products and plastic.  This provides even more energy to safely treat the feces while preserving nutrients, destroying micro plastics such as PFAS, PFOS and pharmaceuticals.  There is good published work to support. We also work in cold climates where biologic solutions such as AD and composting for small communities are not viable for safe treatment and vector attraction.
