Hospital Waste Pilot Programme Sees Improvement for Public Health

The Larnaca hospital in Cyprus conducted a waste pilot programme that resulted in a 7080% reduction in harmful substances from liquid waste, along with the eradication of some pollutants, improving environmental and public health safety. This innovative initiative, in collaboration with the Larnaca Sewerage Board and the University of Cyprus, used advanced treatment techniques to significantly lower the presence of pathogenic bacteria, setting a benchmark for future research and innovation in waste management practices.
