To consolidate Natural UK's position within the Healthcaresector, 2011 will see the announced investment of a purpose-built facility, designed to provide South Wales with a Regional facility for the sustainable management of Clinical and Medical waste. The development will include a clinical / medical waste transfer facility, together with a full steam-sterilisation treatment process to render medical and clinical waste into non-hazardous, inoffensive material. The remaining product, or 'flock', will then be pelletised and used to provide fuel for industry. This zero-emissions plant will provide an effective alternative to the traditional methods of waste disposal and further enhance the diversion of waste away from the customary landfill option. It is a significant investment and underlines our commitment to providing environmentally-friendly and long-term solutions to the waste issue.
