The Pharmafilter platform offers an innovative, modular wastewater- and waste treatment system. It consists of a water treatment installation and - optionally - on-site waste shredders that are connected to the water treatment installation via the internal sewage system.
The Tonto is a compact, quiet and user-friendly waste shredder that is placed in the ward sluice room replacing the need or a bed pan washer or macerators. It is directly connected to the Pharmafilter system. The Tonto shreds the released waste materials from the ward in a simple and hygienic way and makes them processable via the Pharmafilter platform.
The Olla is an innovative single-use bedpan made of bioplastic.
The Botta is a men's urinal with a 24-hour storage capacity.
Biobag is a special rubbish bag that can be used for the various hospital waste streams.
The solid waste that is filtered in the first step of the process is also treated in the Pharmafilter installation. The organic fraction of this waste stream is subject to fermentation, yielding biogas for the production of sustainable-renewable electricity and heat. The remaining waste undergoes a process of dewatering and decontamination.
Following this, the waste can be safely separated so that plastics and precious metals can be reused. This waste disposal method increases circularity options and reduces the hospital's CO2 footprint, as well as waste collection and disposal costs.
