MOBILE ISS AGRI - a solution for safe animal carcass disposal

Infectious animal waste disposal has always been a serious task, but it may have become an even more serious issue with the spread of the African Swine Fever (ASF for short). Ever since its first outbreak in China, the disease has managed to cross many borders within just a year, which has caused concerns for many experts regarding further spread of ASF.

Autoclave functions and uses: introduction to steam sterilization

While most people may have never heard the term “autoclave” before, autoclaves have a wide use in many industries. An autoclave is basically a pressure chamber used to carry out any process that requires highly elevated temperature and pressure, such as medical waste disposal, and/or medical equipment sterilization.

How to dispose of medical waste in 3 steps without endangering the environment

The definition of medical (also known as biomedical or clinical) waste is fairly broad: all waste materials generated at health care facilities, medical research facilities, laboratories can be considered as medical waste. However, it is important to note that even households produce their own clinical waste, as does any organization that deals with needles and/or syringes. Regardless of how you describe medical waste, one thing is certain: its disposal and management isn’t something to be taken lightly.

Insect protein extraction: the future of sustainable farming?
Insect protein extraction: the future of sustainable farming?

While insect farming might be a controversial topic for most, no one can deny that is becoming a more and more booming market. The reason for that is quite simple: growing concerns about environmental sustainability, and the ever-increasing world population, the demand for new, suitable sources of protein has also increased. Many industries have already come to the realization that the current agriculture simply won’t be able to keep up with the expected changes.

According to Christine Middlemiss – the United Kingdom’s chief veterinary officer – African swine fever presents such a threat of spreading even further in Europe and beyond, that she can barely sleep at night. The cause for her concerns isn’t unfounded: as of today, there is still no vaccine against the “pig virus”, and the wild boar population is so dense in Eastern Europe, that the disease basically sustains itself.

Insect farming can be a touchy subject with most people, as our first reaction (understandably) isn’t to view anything with six legs as food. However, the irrefutable benefits of insects like the black soldier fly larvae (often abbreviated as BSFL) may soon overshadow the negative perceptions commonly associated with insects as a source of food.

Animal health and disease prevention are one of the main concerns for agricultural industries working with livestock. Although governments and international organizations set standards to hinder the pathogens causing a threat to animal welfare, sometimes the regulations for disease prevention are not enough. The recent incident in New Zealand, a country heavily relying on its farming industry, is a great example of large and wasteful disease prevention. The government has decided to kill 150,000 cows to eradicate the hazardous bacteria from the national herd and save the economy. There are 24,000 cows already slaughtered. Some of them are transported and slaughtered in processing plants for meat, while some will be killed and buried in animal waste incinerator. For New Zealand, dairy is the main export good, and the eradication program is estimated to cost 886 million New Zealand dollars (€513 million.) Although rendering animals is a common practice to further convert the animal by-product into useful materials and profit, the livestock rendering is currently not carried out.

The healthcare system is designed to prolong life expectancy of patients and enhance their quality of life. Unfortunately, healthcare activities that aim to save lives lead to the generation of large amount of medical waste products. Of the total amount of medical waste products that are produced in each year, 85% of them are categorized as general non-hazardous waste, while the remaining 15% are known to be hazardous to human health.
