Abstract

Technology of plasma-chemical disinfection of hazardous medical waste by method of combustion in the plasma reactor with consequent multistage cleaning of flue gases is described in the article. Waste composition, technological scheme and its brief description and technology waste are represented. Basic problems arising at designing of the similar installations are described, and some ways of their solution are offered.
