Last October, the Southern Philippines Medical Center (SMPC) inaugurated its new Sterilwave 440, the first of the country. Like many other emerging nations, this safe, economic and ecological method pleases the medical centres regardless of their size, where there was little or no medical waste treatment before.
Thanks to its swift microbial inactivation technology for hospital waste on-site, Sterilwave contributes to reduce significantly hospitals’ carbon footprints, by limiting trucks’ goings and comings towards specialized treatment plants – the machine works without even needing water consumption.
By acquiring Bertin’s solution, the SMPC proves to be determined to answer this crucial eco-responsibility problematic and to protect its staff:” This process protects our general garbage and at the same time it also protects the ones who handle the hospital waste”, explains doctor Leopoldo.
