In my research this week about medical waste and its impact on our environment I learned a lot about how we deal and can deal with medical waste. There are multiple different untraditional ways that  we can deal with medical waste; according to The Engineer there are “mini power stations” being set up in communities to help with the large amount of waste.  There power stations use a conversion of thermal energy and high heat to decompose medical waste materials; this releases less harmful toxins into our environment. Along with creating thermal energy for their community. This begs the question is why doesn’t each city have one?
