04 May 2020

The OMPECO Converter reduces waste weight and volume and sterilises (or pasteurises) it using a "moist heat" method. NO INCINERATION!!!!!!!!!

OMPECO whose roots date back to 1973 with over 40 years experience in customer management and study of ad hoc solutions; with a young and dynamic staff.

OMPECO Ltd. today contains within it all the know-how necessary for the production and sale of technology which has now made it his business philosophy: the Converter®.

The hospital waste at high biological risk can be a potential vehicle to transmit infectious disease.
The disposal of hazardous and infectious medical waste is a complex and expensive process due to the limitations of legislation that impose timing and procedures appropriately strict.

The centre's of treatment and disposal of medical wastes are generally far from the places of production of the waste and transports costs are very high, dangerous and often complex. The burden of management and waste treatment usually weighs on the budgets of hospitals and inevitably on citizens.

The waste permanency in landfill for long periods means:

  • High operating costs if you worry about the environmental impact of the landfill
  • Air pollution / emissions high in methane and carbon dioxide (greenhouse gas very active).
  • Groundwater contamination saturation of landfills ? loss of land? uncomfortable odour ? discomfort in the neighbourhood.

For the purpose of simplification of procedures for the management of medical waste OMPECO proposes an advanced, patented technology: the Converter®.

The machinery Converter® are created to treat solids or semi-solids materials, at high temperatures (up to 151 ° C) and, when needed, sterilized using the known method to “moist heat”. The special procedure adopted allows the use of water in liquid form without using pressure.

The Converter® is designed to treat a wide range of materials such as manure, animal, waste from commercial areas, waste generated on board boats, canteen waste, residue oil, medical waste and much more.

The OMPECO also offers other solutions to its customers such as the ability to offer a complete service. This tool comes with a view of Public Administrations and private clinics and hospitals increasingly reluctant to large investments, but increasingly attentive to ecofriendly and reducing emissions..

The OMPECO fact guarantees a managed independently and eliminating the responsibility of the Directorate about the infectious waste product; inside the hospital.

This management allows not only a reduction in disposal costs and transportation, guaranteed by reducing weight and volume of technology Converter®; but above all a safe and controlled management of waste that leaves the hospital walls once treated and sterilized
