autoclaving

A method for treating medical waste to render it noninfectious to humans, by heating it to 140ºC (284ºF), after which the waste can be safely disposed of in a landfill.

According to the thermal conductivity principle, the thermal conductivity of water is 20-30 times higher than that of air and the added water significantly decreases the chances of dry pockets in the waste bag (4) Thus, the results obtained were used to develop an additional guideline for waste sterilization in routine laboratory autoclaving to prevent the spreading of harmful pathogens to the environment.
