HELECTOR is the leader in the field of Hazardous Medical Waste Management (HMWM), as it has constructed and operates since 2002, through the HELECTOR S.A. – ARSI S.A. Joint Venture, the only Medical Waste Incineration Plant (MWIP) in Greece, located in the Sanitary Landfill area in Ano Liossia. The owner of the project is the Special Inter-Collective Association of the Prefecture of Attica (EDSNA), with HELECTOR participating in the Joint Venture with 70%.
The plant at Ano Liossia is the first and the only licensed incineration facility for hospital waste currently in operation in Greece, receiving 4,000 tons of waste per year, from 1,800 medical unit points around Greece (hospitals, clinics, clinical laboratories, doctors’ private practice, dental clinics, veterinary clinics and pharmaceutical warehouses). The facility has a daily capacity of 30 tons, 2 independent incineration lines, temporary storage cooling chambers, internal wastewater management, a radiation control gate and a continuous monitoring system of exhaust gases. The 24-hour operation of the incineration plant ensures the lawful destruction of all collected waste within a short period and the provision of the necessary documents, such as full destruction certificates from the disposal facility within a few days, with the application of advanced technology and the best available techniques.
