Houston, TX based Sharps Compliance has announced a new process to recycle medical waste. Instead of ending up in a landfill, waste products are turned into PELLA-DRX, a material which can be used to make a number of new industrial products.
From the product page:
This first-of-its-kind Waste Conversion Process™ ("WCP") transforms discarded needles, syringes, lancets and other medical waste into a new product called PELLA-DRX™ – which is used in the manufacture of many types of resources including cement, vital to everything from homes to highways to high-rise buildings. This process renders the origin of the product indistinguishable and removes all hazards from the medical waste. WCP eliminates Sharps’ landfill use by 100%.
