Organic molecules inertisation machine

To construct a factory treating residues contaminated with organic molecules of 3 distinct chemical families (phytosanitary, pharmaceutical and cytostatic).

Description of OMIM Process This Project is the industrial and technological development of a machine for the correct treatment of the following waste groups: 1. Cytostatic Waste 2. Pharmaceutical Waste 3. Phytosanitary Waste. At present, these wastes either cannot be treated in SPAIN or can only be done at a centralised unit by incineration. Thus its current management entails high risk factors associated with both the transport of the waste as well as the treatment system, incineration. In this situation, the machine for the inertisation of organic molecules carries out a physical-chemical process of these type of wastes, thus improving it not only for the environmental point of view but also by allowing treatment plants to be situated much nearer the points where the waste is generated, thus fulfilling the European principles of self-sufficiency and proximity in waste management. This process of oxidation is completed by the use of high-energy power ultraviolet light equipment to ensure the decontamination of different wastes and so safeguarding the process and avoiding the recombining of undesired molecules. The Project includes the categorisation of the different wastes in each country, the development of validation techniques for the equipment, the engineering of the details of the machine and the construction and functioning of a treatment plant of the wastes chosen. Keywords: inertisation.
