The MicroEDS BioWaste Treatment System can process between 150 to 500 L of waster per day.

Suncombe’s MicroEDS BioWaste Treatment System is a biologically hazardous waste decontamination unit that can process between 150 to 500 L of waste per day. The low-volume system is certified to ASME and ISO/EN standards for treating biosafety level 1, 2, and 3 waste through an innovative batch process that allows for the positive release of all collected waste.

Advances in the MicroEDS include thermal energy regeneration, low energy usage, and 100% positive release for treated waste and electronic records generation. The system is designed to operate at a thermal treatment parameter of 121 °C for 15 minutes, as well as variable temperature, time and f0 lethality settings, for specific requirements.


According to Suncombe, the new unit delivers at least 61% energy saving relative to prior models and can reduce energy usage and utility consumption by up to 75%. Additionally, based on average use, it reduces the carbon footprint by up to 1.68 tons of carbon dioxide each year.
