Title (EN) METHOD FOR DISINFECTING MEDICAL MATERIALS
(FR) PROCEDE DE DESINFECTION DE MATIERES MEDICALES
Abstract:
(EN) A method of disinfecting medical materials, which comprises heating medical materials and exposing the medical materials to gamma radiation, is provided. One method of heating is the application of radio-frequency waves. The medical materials are subjected to radio-frequency waves for at least approximately 0.25 Mrads. When the starting material consists of pre-sorted medical or veterinary waste, the method further comprises shredding the irradiated waste and recycling the shredded waste.
(FR) Un procédé de désinfection de matières médicales consiste à chauffer lesdites matières médicales et à les exposer à un rayonnement gamma. Un procédé de chauffage consiste en l'application d'ondes de haute fréquence. On soumet lesdites matières médicales à des ondes de haute fréquence jusqu'à concurrence d'au moins approximativement 0,25 Mrads. Lorsque la matière de départ se compose de déchets médicaux ou vétérinaires pré-triés, le procédé consiste également à déchiqueter les déchets irradiés et à les recycler.
