Effective Hospital Waste Treatment in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Hospital waste management in Bosnia and Herzegovina remains a largely discussed topic with weak regulations. The produced hospital waste is usually mixed and dumped without any further sorting or processing, which highly affects the environmental situation and increases the risk to human health. This situation is highly unsustainable, especially as the amount of hospital waste is expected to further increase in the upcoming years.
The project focuses on a reliable disposal of hospital wastes including municipal wastes contaminated by COVID-19 produced by hospitals and related medical facilities. It aims to identify and evaluate the best available hospital waste treatment technologies from technical, economic, environmental and legislative aspects, enabling optimized consumption of energy and utilities and generating savings of operational costs.
The project is led by DAMARIS Solutions (DAMARIS), an engineering-consulting enterprise focusing on effective solutions for waste treatment.
