Biological waste is a special type of unsuitable material, the collection, storage, transportation and disposal of which is regulated by laws.
Compliance with these standards is mandatory for all animal owners, veterinary organizations, livestock farms and other enterprises engaged in the production or processing of animal products.
Biological waste regulated under these rules include:
— corpses of animals and birds, including laboratory;
— aborted and stillborn fruits of birds and animals;
— confiscated items;
— secondary waste processing of raw materials of animal origin.
Since biological material is potentially dangerous for the environmental and sanitary-epidemiological situation, its disposal by burial in the ground is strictly prohibited. It is also prohibited to throw biomass into garbage containers or take it to landfills for further disposal.
Meanwhile, biological and veterinary waste is a very large part of all produced garbage.
And if the disposal of biological waste in landfills is unacceptable, what method is allowed and from the point of view of the law and environmental safety?
To date, the most effective method of disposal of hazardous waste is incineration. The use of special equipment – incinerators– allows to neutralize large amounts of unsuitable materials in compliance with all sanitary and epidemiological requirements.
And it is worth noting that with such a high level of concentration of hazardous substances, the market for their disposal has virtually no competition. Therefore, the use of incinerators at animal waste disposal facilities is also due to a number of economic benefits.
Let’s look at the average market cost of services for cremation and disposal of animal waste for individuals.
The company rendering services in utilization of biological waste carries out and transportation of unsuitable material directly to the place of its subsequent destruction.
Average market value of waste disposal services for organizations and enterprises
The main consumers of the facility for the disposal of biological waste, however, are livestock enterprises and production. Although many of them already use incinerators on their own premises, the demand for this service exceeds the supply.
How to optimize the cost of disposal of biological waste in an incinerator?
One of the most rational solutions to optimize the recycling process is the additional equipment with a heat recovery system. Thanks to this solution, the energy generated by the incinerator will be used to produce heat to heat the room or water.
Installation of such a heat recovery system is carried out at the stage of development and production of the incinerator in accordance with its technical characteristics and features of subsequent operation.
But what about the issue of environmental security?
The problem of proper disposal of waste, including biological, is particularly relevant for countries. There is no doubt that incineration is an effective and cost – effective method of waste disposal, but how safe is it for the environment?
Modern incinerators are equipped with additional equipment-the afterburning chamber of combustion products (gases formed in the process of burning garbage) and a gas cleaning system that prevents the ingress of hazardous exhaust into the atmosphere.
All this makes it possible to guarantee the absolute safety of the recycling process for the environment and for the environment as a whole
