Medical Consumables

Consumables used in medical care include a large number of items that are purchased for use in healthcare. Health and the environment are especially impacted by hazardous chemical additives, use of finite resources and generation of waste. These consumables predominantly consist of disposable items, which results in a considerable amount of waste. Extensive material flow has a significant impact on the environment due to the consumption of large volumes of raw materials and energy use during manufacture, and through emissions of hazardous substances during production, transportation, use and waste disposal.
