POST 00819E : DESTRUCTION OF PLASTIC SYRINGES 4 August 2005 _____________________________________ Godiskine Attemene ( from Côte d'Ivoire asks some specific and practical questions about the destruction of plastic syringes. Please reply directly as it becomes urgent, and copy TechNet. This message was translated from French. _____________________________________ Hello! All, During the national measles vaccination campaign that will be conducted from 18 to 27 August 2005 in Côte d'Ivoire, we have procured about 10 million 0.5 ml AD syringes BD SOLOSHOT IX. These syringes will have to be destroyed after use according to WHO norms. For a massive destruction of this material, we have contacted various enterprises, the main one being PALMCI that produces oil from palm seeds. To produce electricity it uses pressed-seed fibers burnt at over 1000°C in a furnace. We requested the use of their facilities for the incineration of our syringes. PALMCI agrees in principle but is asking for replies to the following questions that I would like to submit to you: 1/ Thermic caracteristics of the different materials included in the syringe : - Incineration temperature (transformation into ashes) of the syringe, including the needle. - Calorific properties of the different materials of the syringe including the safety box. 2/ Chemical properties of the smoke produced by the incineration of syringes and safety boxes. Your contributions will be greatly appreciated.
