The disposal of hospital waste needs special treatment. One of the methods used in Thailand is incineration. The incinerators currently used are either imported or built in Thailand and have operating problems leading to the emission of air pollution, effecting the environment. Research and development on hospital waste incineration technologies offer solutions to these problems, in terms of technology, cost and efficiency, and easing of incineration operation. In this study, four cases on incinerators of different technologies, sizes and operating conditions are studied.

Create 3R Knowledge Base

3R Knowledge Hub is continuously working towards capturing, creating and disseminating reduce, reuse, recycle (3R) knowledge products on various topics related to waste management in Asia. We continually seek our knowledge partners’ support in doing so.  We therefore request all the interested parties to support us with information on the following-

  1. City Waste Profile: City waste Profile is an assessment of waste management situation in a city. Local authorities and/or any interested individual and organization is welcome to share the information.
  2. Case Study: Case studies that highlight any flagship projects on solid waste management and 3R are welcome.
  3. Technology Factsheet: 3R recycling technology manufacturers and distributors are requested to share the available recycling technologies. Please note 3RKH do not endorse any of the technology or trade name, the sheer purpose is to share information.
