The company started the research and development of the Safe Waste Turbo 2000Vi in the early part of 2000. The cost of medical waste incineration was increasing year on year. This meant that more money had to be allocated to the medical waste destruction thus reducing the funds available for medical treatment. The impact of these costs is felt by both developing and developed countries.
Part of the research was to find a solution to the following:
- Economical to operate (less than 30% of conventional incinerator costs)
- Environmentally friendly
- Mobile and easy to operate
- Non-fuel fired
- Operation with a generator for areas without electricity
- An on-site solution to the disposal of medical/combustible waste
- Able to incinerate 20kgs per hour
Once the Safe Waste unit was complete, the company was approached by WHO/UNICEF to have laboratory and field testing done.
The reason these tests were done was because there was a vast need for an incinerator to fulfill the above points.
CSIR ( Council for Scientific and Industrial Research ) undertook the laboratory tests under a fixed criteria (File 86DD/HT200). This included the three months of clinical trials.
The Committee of participants included:
- Collaborative Centre for Cold Chain Management
- Dep. Agriculture, Conservation and Environment
- Dep. Of Environmental Affairs and Tourism
- Dep. Of Health – Environmental Health
- Dep. Of Water Affairs and Forestry.
C&S manufactured the Safe Waste Turbo units for many countries in Africa. Some of which were, Ghana, Senegal, Mozambique, Nigeria, Tunisia, Egypt and Cameroon.
World Bank TB Project in Madagascar – Supplied with standard Safe Waste Turbo 2000Vi units as well as unit with generators for outlying areas.
There was a further need for a unit with a larger capacity but with the same characteristics of the Safe Waste Turbo 2000Vi C&S developed the Safe Waste Turbo 4000DVi unit which incinerates 40-60kgs an hour. These were supplied to Military Hospitals in Africa and rural clinics in Ghana.
Many of the units that C&S manufactured have been supplied to NGO’s and Distributors.
