Since 1989 around the world AWS Systems using internationally recognised World leading Technology treat biologically hazardous waste particularly clinical waste including that from hospitals, clinics and homes and quarantine waste including that from seaports and airports.

Since 1989 around the world AWS Systems using internationally recognised World leading Technology treat biologically hazardous waste particularly clinical waste including that from hospitals, clinics and homes and quarantine waste including that from seaports and airports.

AWS has also successfully established and operated Clinical and Quarantine Waste Treatment Facilities using its AWS Systems and Technology. We can therefore offer our Purchasers Consulting Service for establishing a Facility for an AWS System. The Service enables Purchasers to meet the Legislative and Local Government requirements for waste treatment and disposal. The Service can include odour control, waste water management and utilisation of waste energy.

There is an AWS System to cost effectively deal with and meet your Clinical and Quarantine Waste Treatment requirements.

AWS System feature:

  • Low cost, energy efficient and effective waste treatment by steam sterilisationdesign to meet Client requirements, taking minimum space and is quickly and easily installed with onsite installation at the waste generators premises or offsite at the collectors premises
     
  • compliance with the most stringent Government Legislative requirements including Health, Environmental, Biosecurity, (AQIS, Marpol), Workplace Health and Safety and Local Government
     
  • Technically supported by AWS onsite and via the internet. Every AWS System is fully supported by a comprehensive Technical Support Program which enables AWS to monitor and enhance the performance of the AWS System via the internet and through local representation providing periodic maintenance, Regulatory Inspections and Certified Tests
     
  • Total Automation (TA), introduced to minimise risk and control biological hazards to a level not yet seen anywhere else, requires no Operator and can process around the clock every day of the year
     
  • The AWS No emissions to Atmosphere (NETA) System is now an integral part of the AWS Treatment Systems and is designed to condense emissions from the AWS Waste Sterilising System thereby eliminating all condensable odours, approved by and in compliance with the most stringent Environmental Protection Agency Requirements. AWS offers the new NETA System as an upgrade to existing Systems to meet Environmental Protection Agency Requirements and to improve the workplace environment.
     

AWS System benefits:

  • Reduce Cost

    • The cost for waste treatment by an AWS System can be less than half that charged by Contractors that haul the waste offsite to incineration or other treatment processes
       
  • Reduce Waste

    • The volume of waste is reduced by as much as 80% by the AWS System treatment depending on the nature of the waste and it should be noted that mass cannot be reduced whatever treatment method is used (incineration simply puts the solid waste into the atmosphere as greenhouse gases and other airborne pollutants)
       
  • Reduce Hazards

    • Local Authorities and Biohazard Regulators are closing landfill options for the disposal of clinical and quarantine waste and in particular more Australian Ports and Airports are using AWS Systems for the treatment of quarantine waste
       
  • Break the Disease Cycle

    • The AWS System utilises the treatment process of steam sterilisation to destroy disease and exotic pests in waste classified as biologically hazardous thereby breaking the disease cycle and rendering the waste harmless and suitable for disposal in the non hazardous waste stream
       
  • Verify the Treatment Process

    • The AWS System follows International Standard Procedures for verifying the effectiveness of the steam sterilisation treatment process using biological challenge procedures (spore tests) and autonomous thermocouple testing (NATA certified thermal testing or equivalent
       
  • No Emissions to Atmosphere

    • See System Features above
  • Reduce greenhouse gases

    • The AWS System can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to one tonne per tonne of waste treated when compared to incineration and can also utilise waste energy from on site electricity generation resulting in a negligible net energy use for waste treatment. The AWS System can qualify for Carbon Trading
