MERI uses the environmentally compatible process of Microwave Processing to ensure safety and value in their treatment of medical waste products. The great advantage of microwave technology is that it heats material from the inside out, providing an extraordinarily high level of disinfection. With no harmful air emissions or liquid discharges of any kind, the only by-product of waste treated through our Sanitec system is a confetti-like residue. The volume of the material is reduced by 80%.
