systems management of the biological waste management is becoming a challenging
issue in India due to rapid urbanization and alarming growth in population. The
government and non government agencies has recognized biological waste
management as matter of concern. Proper methods of treatment of bio medical

Incineration is the one of the most commonly adopted methods of treatment of
the bio medical waste in india,this is because of low cost .this process of
treatment of the waste leads to the pollution of the environment. Health care
institutions do not use the satisfactory methods for the treatment of the bio
medical waste management the waste generated from health care facilities are at
present collected without segregation into infectious and non-infectious
categories and disposed in municipal bins located in either inside or outside
facility premises. The solid waste management has become one of the major topic
