In response to requests from hospitals, we have developed a special rubbish bag that can be used for the various hospital waste streams. This Biobag is made out of bioplastic and fully fermentable in the Pharmafilter installation, hence generating energy during the treatment process and reducing the amount of waste from the hospital even further.
Special handles attached to the top of the Biobag enables staff to apply less pressure to close the bag. Its heavy duty design prevents tears and leaks. The Biobag has a 40 litre capacity but is designed so that it can also be used in standard 60 litre rubbish bins.

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.
