Hospital incinerator. Biohazard sign on the gates of an incinerator designed to dispose of medical waste. An incinerator disposes of waste by burning it at extremely high temperatures. This destroys toxic chemicals and harmful micro-organisms in the waste. The emission of smoke and combustion gases is tightly regulated and equipment must be used to clean the smoke and gases before they are released into the atmosphere. This is the incinerator for the Walsall Hospitals NHS Trust, Walsall, West Midlands, England.
