The Biomedical Waste Management & Handling Rules 1998 require all Hospitals, Nursing homes, Municipal
Corporations, Clinics, Pathological Labs, Blood Banks animal houses, research institutes etc who generate,
collect, receive, store, transport, treat, dispose or handle bio-medical waste in any form that It shall be the
duty of every occupier of an institution generating bio-medical waste to ensure that such waste is handled
without any adverse effect to human health and environment.

While urban solid waste has attracted the attention of town planners, environmental activists and civic
administrators, there is yet lack of concern for some special sources of waste and its management.

According to the WHO, the global life expectancy is increasing year after year. However, deaths due to
infectious disease are increasing. A study conducted by the WHO in 1996, reveals that more than 50,000
people die everyday from infectious diseases. One of the causes for the increase in infectious diseases is
improper waste management. Blood, body fluids and body secretions which are constituents of bio-medical
waste harbor most of the viruses, bacteria and parasites that cause infection. This passes via a number of
human contacts, all of whom are potential ‘recipients’ of the infection. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)
and hepatitis viruses spearhead an extensive list of infections and diseases documented to have spread
through bio-medical waste. Tuberculosis, pneumonia, diarrhoeal diseases, tetanus, whooping cough etc.,
are other common diseases spread due to improper waste management.

The generators and operators of Bio-Medical waste are often faced with the problem of selecting the right
technology for treatment and disposal.
