Waste container ‘made of 100% recycled material’

Mauser Packaging Solutions has launched what it says is the market’s first medical waste container made of 100% recycled plastics generated from post-consumer packaging waste.

The company said: “The new WIVA Infinity Container combines the superior protection and handling of specific healthcare risk waste with the environmental benefits of using recycled

plastic resin. Users in hospitals, clinics, laboratories, medical practices, nursing homes, and pharmacies can expect a 50 per cent lower CO2 footprint with the new containers than with those made of virgin plastic material.”

The new container is available in 30, 50, and 60 litre sizes.

Mauser Packaging Solutions, which claims to be Europe’s leading producer of medical waste containers, collaborated with QCP (Quality Circular Polymers) and SUEZ to develop new recycling plastics ‘able to meet the highest quality standards applicable for packaging designed to handle healthcare risk waste’. The new product concept was successfully tested according to United Nations Dangerous Goods protocols. Mauser Packaging Solutions’ range of metal, plastic, fibre, and hybrid packaging is supplied worldwide to companies operating in sectors ranging from food, beverage, and personal care, to pharmaceuticals, chemicals, petrochemicals, agrochemicals, and paints.
