To document the environmental friendliness of the products, we have had the MEDISTER equipment analyzed by an independent body in accordance with the requirements of the International Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) system, taking into account the requirements of ISO 14025: 2006 and ISO 14040: 2006. The developed Environmental Product Declaration shows the impact on the environment in all lifecycle phases of the MEDISTER devices.
Already during the development of the MEDISTER devices, METEKA places great emphasis on the avoidance of hazardous substances and the associated toxic emissions.
If you are interested, please contact us and we will send you further information on the environmental product declaration.
When compared with alternative waste decontamination options currently available on the market, it becomed obvious that the MEDISTER treatment system is certainly one of the “greenest” possibilities to treat infectious waste, if not the “greenest” system currently available.
For example, during the entire product life cycle of the MEDISTER 160 HF Waste Decontamination Unit, greenhouse gas emissions amount to only 2.56 kg CO2 equivalents per treatment cycle, with the vast majority being due to energy consumption during operation.
