Background and Purpose
Infectious waste management and disposal are becoming
increasingly important  issues to hospitals,  universities,
research facilities, and similar institutions. Widely reported
illegal disposal incidences and beach washups in the last few
years have raised national concern. At the same time, strin-
gent legislation responding to medical waste incidents, as well
as the increased services performed by hospitals and other
institutions, have  substantially increased the  volumes of
waste designated as "potentially infectious,"

The workshop series will address the advantages, disadvan-
tages, and limitations of the various on-site treatment technol-
ogies and offsite disposal options for medical waste. Materials
presented will provide in-depth coverage of medical and spe-
cial waste incineration, technology,  emissions, operations,
and regulatory issues. The goal is to provide hospitals and
other institutions with a  foundation for selecting  and im-
plementing the best, most cost-effective waste treatment or in-
cineration program.
