Ecodas by PRI™ offers a wide range of treatment systems for solid regulated infectious waste. Systems designed for hospital sharps and red bag waste, single-use biopharmaceutical manufacturing, to high-containment waste such as animal bedding.
Ecodas by PRI™ systems are a versatile option for the on-site treatment of difficult solid waste streams, such as regulated medical waste, single-use disposables, roller bottles, bedding and others. The system offers a shred and steam sterilization process (treatment greater than 6 log reduction) that reduces overall waste volume density by up to 80%.
On-site treatment greatly reduces reliance upon external contractors who often use treatment methods such as incineration, which are harmful for the environment and energy-inefficient. Ecodas by PRI™ can reduce material transport, treatment and disposal costs by up to 30% to 50% over hazardous haul-away treatment services. Avoidance of incineration lowers energy use and carbon emissions.
Once treated, the waste material is rendered as common municipal waste, appropriate for standard disposal, or recycling where applicable.
The patented Ecodas process shreds all material once the vessel lid is closed, prior to the start of the steam treatment cycle, to ensure the efficacy of the steam sterilization throughout the load. The system uses direct heated steam and pressure to completely sterilize infectious waste, surpassing traditional autoclaving by rendering the waste unrecognizable due to the integrated shredder system. Temperature, pressure and time are continuously monitored and maintained through the integrated control system. Achieves microbial inactivation greater than 106.
For over 20 years, Ecodas has been supplying companies with advanced medical waste treatment systems and environmentally-friendly solutions. With more than 420 units installed in over 75 countries around the world, customers trust Ecodas to provide high quality treatment and disposal systems that are safe, reliable, compliant, and cost-effective, protecting the public health while preserving the planet.
Ecodas is an ISO 9001 certified quality manufacturer, with a commitment to continuous improvement, adapting manufacturing standards to meet local codes, including ASME. Ecodas systems have been approved in 44 US states, and have been evaluated to meet high level microbial inactivation – Level IV according to STAATT I and STAATT II standards.
The Ecodas by PRI™ family of systems are a hybrid autoclave that processes hazardous solid wastes in as fast as only 30 minutes, achieving high level sterilization, destruction, cooling and drain.
