Disposal and recycling of waste in Ukraine
Latex is a material consisting of natural rubber tree sap and chemical components. Thanks to its special qualities and properties, its products are widely used in industrial enterprises, in medicine and in everyday life. Utilization of latex is a complex process with the addition of various chemical reagents. For products made from this material, depending on its composition and scope of use, different methods of disposal are used.
Why latex needs to be disposed of
Latex products are an extensive range of products widely used in medicine, industry and everyday life. If we consider the areas of application of latex products, they can be divided into three groups:
Domestic use of latex products is the least dangerous for the environment. However, it is better to hand over worn-out pillows and mattresses for recycling, and not to throw them in a landfill. Latex products used in the chemical industry and medicine can do much more harm. Daily laboratories, hospitals and private centers use a huge amount of latex gloves. In addition to the fact that these products can be stored for decades in landfills, they pose a threat to human health if they are not sanitized and destroyed. This is especially true of gloves used by healthcare professionals.
Disposal of medical latex has a number of stringent requirements:
Depending on the purpose and nature of the use of latex products, two types of utilization are possible - destruction and recycling into secondary raw materials. Acceptance of latex is carried out at the customer’s premises, hermetically closed boxes are used for transportation. The processing procedure begins with the cleaning and disinfection in several stages.
Latex products, used in medicine and chemical purposes, after cleaning from chemicals, reagents and infectious pathogens are destroyed in special closed furnaces. The remains of the burned material are placed in special burials.
Natural latex to be processed is subjected to a regeneration procedure using a special rubber mixer machine and thermochemical processing. In the future, the resulting mass can be used as a material for rubber products.
