China's centralized medical waste disposal capacity increased by 39 percent


2022-06-23: [Article Link]  The rule of law daily, all media reporter, Zhangwei. In 2021, a total of 1.4 million tons of medical waste were generated throughout the country, with a centralized disposal capacity of over 2150,000 tons per year, an increase of 39 per cent over the pre-epidemiological period. This was informed by journalists at a regular press conference held by the Ministry of Eco-Environment on 23 June: “The Ministry of Eco-Environment will keep an eye on the generation and disposal of medical waste throughout the country, cooperate with the health sector in the management of the classification and receipt of nucleic acid-detected waste, further strengthen the environmental supervision of nucleic acid-detected waste, and maintain the environmental safety of the population. According to Liu Yu Bin, the Ministry of Eco-Environment attaches great importance to capacity-building and regulation of medical waste disposal, which, according to recent movements, is generally stable and orderly in high-risk areas of the country. Over the past three months, the average daily load rate of medical waste disposal facilities has been below 90 per cent in municipalities (states) and municipalities directly under the control of the most high-risk regions of the country, 97 per cent of which are below 80 per cent, 66 per cent of which are below 50 per cent, and all medical waste has been properly disposed of and is largely daily. It is known that since Covid-19 Pandemic took place, the Ministry of Ecology and Environment, in conjunction with the relevant departments, has issued a number of documents and related technical guidelines on strengthening capacity-building and monitoring of the disposal of medical waste, and has made significant efforts to upgrade the regulatory and disposal capacity of medical waste, and has guided the strict implementation of the “two 100 per cent” requirement for the timely and effective collection and disposal of medical waste in all health-care institutions and facilities with full coverage of environmental supervision and services. There has been a significant increase in the capacity of medical waste central disposal facilities, which is evident in the combined data of 2019 — a total of 1.18 million tons of medical waste generated throughout the country and 1540,000 tons/year of centralized disposal capacity. In addition, there is sufficient co-ordinated emergency disposal capacity for hazardous waste incineration facilities, industrial kilns, etc., which is readily available for guaranteed emergency disposal, and existing medical waste routine and emergency disposal capacity to meet medical waste disposal needs, including nucleic acid detection waste.
