Newster® NW15 Solid Waste Steriliser provides solid waste solutions for effective and efficient treatment of potentially infectious healthcare waste.

Newster NW15 Solid Waste Steriliser for Potentially Infectious Waste

Newster NW15 is a patented, eco-sustainable solution for clinical waste management. Produced by Newster Group, the Newster® Sterilizer is based on patented Frictional Heat Treatment technology.

Onsite medical waste treatment by hospitals and health care providers is safer for waste handlers, healthcare providers, patients, the broader community and the environment.

How Newster Solid Waste Sterilisation Works

The entire healthcare waste treatment process occurs on-site under the supervision of specially trained staff, guaranteeing maximum efficiency. There is no need to transport the waste from the hospital to an external disposal centre. Time, risks and financial costs are all minimised.

The NW15 Sterilisation equipment uses a patented frictional heat technology that requires:

  • no external chemicals;
  • sterilises potentially infectious chemical waste;
  • uses dehydration method to make the waste unrecognisable, odourless and reduces its volume; and
  • removes all microbiological active organisms.
