Operating Principles

Thermal treatment technology is a safe and effective process, converting medical waste into an alternative energy source.



Vanguard’s revolutionary system renders medical wastes unrecognizable after treatment.  This is achieved through an advanced shredding and extruding process which can handle nearly all waste streams generated by healthcare.


Requiring no steam or liquid chemistry, thermal treatment creates an extremely dry byproduct which is required for an efficient and valuable alternative source of energy.  



State of the art engineering maintains temperatures high enough to destroy all pathogenic organisms but low enough to prevent creation of toxic fumes or pollutants associated with exposing plastics to high heat (e.g., chloride gas).
