GURGAON: Waste management is an integral part of a healthcare system. Helping the Millennium City, which has emerged as a hub for quality healthcare services, to manage its bio-medical waste effectively and successfully is city-based Vulcan Waste Management Pvt. Ltd, a common bio-medical waste treatment facility (CBWTF) authorized by Haryana State Pollution Control Board (HSPCB) for collection, transportation, treatment and disposal of bio-medical waste.
"As per Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) guidelines in any area, only one CBWTF is allowed to cater to up to 10,000 beds situated within a radius of 150 km. Gurgaon at present has around 5,000 beds in its healthcare units, hence there is no need for a second facility as we are successfully providing our services to them. If the number of beds increases, we will increase our capacity as we already have the authorization," said Kuldeep Panwar, founder director of Vulcan Waste Management located at Bhondsi. The company also caters to the districts of Faridabad, Rewari, Mahendergarh, Palwal and Mewat. Read more
