Treatment of such diseases results in the production of a large number of biological residues and by products. Several hospitals in the U.S. have already started recycling their single use products. These products are sold back to the hospitals at a fraction of the original price.

Traditionally, incineration of medical wastes has been one of the most dominant methods of waste management procedures. However, this process results in the release of numerous harmful gases like dioxins, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide. These gases play a significant role in contributing toward global warming. The Environment Protection Agency (EPA) has tightened the limits of air emission in the U.S. Stricter laws have resulted in the increased take up of non-incineration technologies like non-ionization radiation treatment, steam autoclave treatment, and a wide variety of chemical-based treatments. In addition, less requirement of capital together with the capability of efficaciously converting medical waste into efficient materials is likely to drive the US medical waste management market in years to come.
