Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR ISOLATION OF POTENTIALLY HARMFUL MATERIAL
Abstract:
A method and an apparatus for isolating potentially harmful medical substances, such as antibiotics, is disclosed. An aqueous composition, such as blackwater, contains potentially harmful medical substances present in dissolved state in bodily waste. The aqueous composition is temporarily stored in a buffer tank (22) and is then transferred in batches to a vaporization unit (24) comprising one or more vaporization chambers (26, 28) for producing a water- reduced waste material containing said potentially harmful medical substances. The waste material is subjected to a destructive treatment, such as a high- temperature incineration process.
